I Don't Have to Be Perfect
Someone criticized me this week, and it really hurt my feelings! It made me start doubting myself.
When someone criticizes me as a mom, I’ll start doubting myself as a mom. When someone criticizes me as a friend, I’ll doubt my ability to be a good friend. Ten people can say something nice, but what I remember is that one person’s criticism.
Well, I called a friend for some encouragement and with great wisdom she told me, "Renee, you’ll never be perfect. And if you ever get to where you are, you’ll be all alone!”
After we hung up, I asked God to give me His perspective, too. He reminded me that Jesus, the only perfect person to walk this earth, was constantly criticized but never doubted His calling. He depended only on His Father’s approval. Remembering this helped remove the sting of criticism and gave me hope.
