The 30 Day Blog Challenge, Day 17: I'm Not Perfect

Prompt: What is the thing you most wish you were great at?

I've learned recently that our culture rarely values this important definition of love: to be willing to drop EVERYTHING in order to be there for that person, whatever is on his/her mind.

In answer to the question: I wish I could be great at loving everyone around me, and displaying that through a strong relationship with God.

I'm not always good at maintaining my relationship with God, and each time I fail to live for the Lord, I find that at the same time, I don't maintain good relationships with others.

I know that I'll never be 100% perfect as Jesus was, but I know that one of my responsibilities as his child is to do my best to reflect His image. Furthermore, I know that I have a chance at becoming like Him because He made my record of sin completely clean. So, even though I mess up a lot, Christ made it so that I can still build up my relationships with God and others.

That means that Christ has given us all the chance to do great things.

Question for the Reader: What do you wish you were great at?

"Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." --Ephesians 5:1-2


  1. oh, I completely agree. and i like your point about not being able to love others without loving God - it has to be vertical before it can be horizontal, if that makes sense.

    I wish I was better at respecting/obeying my parents... seems like the season of life I'm in makes it so hard to put them as my authority.

  2. Yes, that completely makes sense!

    I'm dealing with similar problems with my parents. I feel like I keep believing the lie that they're the only ones with the problem, and I keep refusing to change my actions and thoughts towards them. Your parents love you very much, and I'll be praying that you guys solve any issues needed.
