Hi, this is Ryan Ross, Missions Pastor at Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church with your Inspirational Thought of the day.

Nobody’s perfect right! Well, this is a true statement, but I’m afraid it has become a little bit of a crutch for our society. We make a mistake, hey “nobody’s perfect.” We hurt someone, “nobody’s perfect.”

One of the great men of faith, Paul, instructed the church to imitate or follow him as he followed Christ. He also instructed his young disciple Timothy to flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace.

It is true that nobody is perfect, but just because we can’t be perfect, it should not give us an excuse NOT to try! A football team will never score on every play, but that doesn’t mean they do not try. A corporation will not turn a profit on every product, but it will still try.

Strive for righteousness, faith, love, and peace today. Sure you will mess up, but it does NOT hurt to try!
