STOP AND THINK – Excellence is to be desired, but perfection cannot be required. (Jesse Deloe, writer, editor)
Doing things well is an excellent goal. We should all do our very best at whatever task we undertake. We should strive for excellence and encourage it in others, also. But, to demand perfection is beyond our human capabilities. It is through experiencing imperfections and failures that we learn and grow. Set the standards high and work hard to achieve them.
I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone. (Titus 3:8)
