Seek not perfection!

If you seek perfection,
You may never arrive;
If you seek perfection,
You may never even start;
Perfection is not of humans;
Perfection is of God alone;
Seek excellence;
Seek not perfection;
To seek perfection
Is to seek the unrealistic;
It is to seek that which you
Cannot achieve.

  1. An astute observation!
    As a recovering “perfectionist” I will take this on board and trust that in pursuit of excellence, I don’t take things over into the obsessive and unattainable realm of perfection. Thank you dear brother for sharing this wisdom nugget.
