Ever been in training for a particular job? Or maybe you were the one training the other person. In either case, the whole concept of training is that the person does not already understand all that there is to know about the job. The training is a process to provide further education and increase various skills so that one can competently do the job. Even after one develops a level of skill and competence, rarely is he perfect.

There is nothing wrong with aiming for perfection. In fact, scripture specifically challenges us to do so (2 Cor. 13:11). However, when our failures are creating guilt or self-condemnation and hindering our life’s progress, we can encourage ourselves and release condemnation by reminding ourselves of two simple points.

  1. Only God is perfect. “As for God, His way is perfect; the Word of the Lord is flawless (2 Sam. 22:31).” Yes, aim for perfection. It’s necessary for personal growth, wellness, and character. As the old saying goes, if instead you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time! Putting the effort into aiming for perfection is what creates our growth, but we balance our attempts with the fact that only God is perfect.
  2. You are in training. Life is the training period for your spirit. Every thought, word, action, interaction and relationships with people, all sculpt your spirit. In this life, you are to “continually train yourself in godliness (1 Tim. 4:7MNT).” Just as an apprentice training for a job, your level of skill and competence in your spirit is in a state of training throughout this life. As He stated in the above quote, God realizes you are in training. You need to admit it to yourself as well and realize that no trainee is perfect. You can still do a great job as a trainee, but take the pressure off of yourself; release the self-condemnation!

If you are aiming for perfection in your spirit, you ARE doing the job well that you need to do!
