Perfection and Imperfection

August 21, 2016

“God perceives the imperfections within us, and because of his love for us, urges us to grow up. His love is not content to leave us in our weakness, and for this reason He takes us into a dark night. He weans us from all of the pleasures by giving us dry times and inward darkness." (John of the Cross)

 

“God chooses to work His divine will on earth through finite, imperfect beings. We are made from the dust of the ground, yet God chooses to place within us his life and breath and to ask us to serve Him.” (Life Application Study, Ezekiel 2:1)

 

“When we love as God loves, we do indeed cover over many of the areas where we fall short and despite our imperfections, we move towards God through grace.” (Sacramental Living)

“…true understanding of God, insists on our imperfect knowledge of God. We know only that we know only a little.” (George Parsenios, PhD)

 

“…our Lord specifically calls Peter to the apostolic ministry. Christ goes out of His way to select a man who, by his own admission, is sinful and unworthy of so great a call! Here Christ shows His true understanding of the human condition. Were He to choose perfect and holy men, they would have little sympathy for the failings and weaknesses of others. By choosing imperfect “vessels” to carry His good news, Christ is showing that mercy and forgiveness is available to all who ask.” (Father James Gavrilos)
