Strive for Correction...Not Perfection

Today while on facebook one of my acquaintances from middle school wrote a note about relationships that was very good and very thought provoking and one statement really stood out to me...strive for correction, not perfection. Think about it, no one will ever be perfect except Jesus Christ and none of us are Him.

He talked about how we seek perfection in other people, but we are not perfect ourselves. This is in all relationships. None of us are perfect so we can't expect others to be. If you are always looking for that person to be perfect then your relationships will be void. Not to say not have standards and dreams, but not to have ideas of perfection that will never be met and don't expect people to live up to your ideas of perfection because they will always let you down.
Wrote all this to say...strive for correction, not perfection. Each experience in life take it as a learning one. When I was in band my director said it best....practice does not make perfect, it makes better. We are human and we make mistakes, but we should try to learn from our mistakes and move forward.
