“But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:48
I can never polish my nails as nicely as they do at the nail salon.
Maybe it’s because of the awkward angles I have to paint from. Maybe it’s because this is what they do every single day. Or maybe it’s because I’m just too heavy handed when it comes to the applications.
Either way there’s always a big difference when I DIY my nails versus going to get them professionally done.
Don’t get me wrong, from a distance, you can’t really tell the difference.
When I do my own nails, they’re decent enough to get compliments from others. But when I take a close up look, I can always spot the imperfections.
The closer I examine my paint job, the more over the lines, smudging, and uneven polish I see.
But isn’t that like our walk with Christ?
