Be intent upon the perfection of the present day. (William Law, 18th-century English priest)

Most people probably want to pursue excellence in their involvements whether it’s work, sports, or the arts. But there often comes a time when we’re tired or discouraged, and we’re tempted to let down and not give it our best at the moment. Law’s comment should encourage us to never take a break in the pursuit of excellence. Always work to be as close to perfection as possible.

But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. (Philippians 3:1:2)
