Read Devotion #13 in Come With Me Devotional
I cringe when people make noise when they eat.
I have a temper that can flash.
I eavesdrop on other people’s conversations.
I hide my favorite gum or candy so that others can’t find them.
Sometimes I’m impatient.
I am tempted to pull away from you if I feel hurt by you.
There’s more to this list, and rather than trying to out myself to you, I’m sharing the fact that we are all human. We try to do better and we grow, because it matters.
But at some point we will fall short. If someone looks at me and thinks that I’m worthy of following, it’s the last thing I want. As much as I love Jesus, I will never be Jesus.
And thank goodness, he doesn’t ask us to be.
