Good Enough

There’s a saying that the enemy of “Good” is “Better.”

Some things should be done as well as we can. Our relationship with God and family, for example.

Other things only need to be “good enough.” Painting the closet is a perfect example.

It’s both easy to confuse the two, and very difficult to figure out which things really need to be perfect. Does Thanksgiving need to be on par with the Norman Rockwell painting? Does the homemade Halloween costume need to be of Broadway quality?

Jesus said that we should be perfect as the Father is perfect. I used to be confused about this, thinking that it meant I had to be perfect in all things. Now I think it means that we should focus on the things that God focuses on – perfecting love, forgiveness and patience.
