Made Perfect in Weakness

I was listening to an inspirational audio recording yesterday with my wife when I heard something that really resonated.  It's not a particularly new idea and in fact I've blogged on this here already but simply the way the speaker put it struck a cord.

The idea is fairly simple.   We get too caught up in trying to be perfect when it's our imperfections that give us character.  

He gave the examples of wood, marble, and jade.   You don't look at the lines on a wooden surface and think 'Oh, those should be straighter' or that the lines on a marble counter should be more equally spaced.   Of course not!  There's beauty in it's imperfection.
