Perfection  #2

Perfection: admire it; aspire to it, but don’t require it. (Geno Auriemma, coach of championship college women’s basketball teams)

Coach Auriemma’s teams were often near perfection, winning national championships and losing very few games. He seemed to be pretty hard on his college teams, always urging them to do better, to play as well as they could, and they responded nearly to perfection. It’s a good lesson for us. We will not be perfect, but we should aspire to it, and do our very best.

Let [your faith] grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing (James 1:4).
