No prison is as endless as the prison of perfection. (Max Lucado, preacher and author)

Andrew Murray wrote, “You are confined only by the walls you build yourself.” Self-imposed imprisonments may be more difficult to live with than incarceration. And the worst may be the demand for perfection. It’s so difficult, in part, because none of us will ever be perfect. Only God is perfect and can forgive us our imperfections.

As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him (2 Samuel 22:31). The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul (Psalm 19:7).
