Perfectionism can turn us into an unwitting accomplice for the status quo. (Bobby Gruenewald, pastor and innovator)

More: “Improvement is admirable. Perfection is impossible. . . . Our pursuit of an unattainable standard can keep us from getting anywhere near our goal. We end up tolerating more imperfection for far longer than if we accepted an almost-perfect solution.” In other words, it’s better to put up with less than perfect than waiting for the perfect that we may never achieve.

To all perfection I see a limit, but your commands are boundless. Psalm 119:96
