    Are you perfect in any way?

    Some people think they are most perfect but faults are made and forgotten. What makes that perfect person? Do you think you are more perfect than another individual?

    The only perfect individual on this earth was Jesus Christ.
    The Bible reads, 'there is none perfect, no not one.'
    That being said, I am sure there are those out there who think they are perfect.
    One day years ago one of the physicians I worked with joked with me.  He said, "the only mistake I have made is I thought I was wrong and I wasn't."
    I have never forgotten that.
    I think a great quality in a human being is humility, along with integrity. 
    The only person I can think of who has very few flaws is my husband.  He is a wonderful human being, very honest, generous and sincere.  He never lies, tells the truth, in fact if there was a person he disliked and that person did something to upset me, if he thought I was wrong and that person was not he would stick up for that person...even though he did not like the individual.  He is that honest.
    I NEVER think I am perfect OR better than another person.  How dare I?  I hate to say it, but there are Christians out there who are so pious and judgmental and think they are better than others.  I find that to be atrocious.  I am a Christian but I do not dump religion on others....I used to and I have many regrets about it.
    Thank you for this thought-provoking question.  God bless, Sparklea smile

    DDE, I am to imperfect an individual to have the answer to this. But I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes (it is from The Wizard of Oz): "A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others."
    And this (it seems to me) a pretty good standard to reach for in this life.

    I know several people who "think" they're perfect lol.  But even experts make mistakes or don't know everything. Learning from mistakes is a part of life.

      I never thought of myself as perfect.  Mistakes are made and should be learned from too. Thank you.

    Very difficult question to answer. I never think to be perfect than others. I acknowledge myself as human, and you know to err is human. So human being is not perfect. He is always limited by his emotions to reach that perfect stage. So, I think it is foolishness to feel to be perfect for anybody. One can only try to be perfect by remembering that he is imperfect and always keep trying to be as perfect as possible till his death. That is all what I can say.

      Hello certainly a difficult question as there is no perfect individual the moment one is old enough  they lose their perfection. Thank you.

    No DDE, we can all strive for perfection as our goal, but it is unattainable. I am far from perfect. I just try my best.

    Only the divine can achieve perfection. Everyone makes errors in one way or another.

    used to think I knew it all DDE- if that was perfect I don't know.Used to always strive for the ideal instead of living life as it was. Life has taught me different. I don't know much at all and too old to learn now.
