We are ALL HUMAN: Get over it!

Updated on November 16, 2014

You're not perfect either!

I've noticed recently: We live in an imperfect world, full of imperfect people, who live imperfect lives. Yet we demand perfection from those around us, and as soon as we find the slightest error in anything, we seek to exploit, magnify, humiliate, file sue, destroy, and/or terminate it.

Frankly, I'm tired of it. Guess what? YOU'RE NOT PERFECT EITHER!!


In the words of Elder Deiter F. Uchtdorf

"This topic of judging others could actually be taught in a two-word sermon. When it comes to hating, gossiping, ignoring, ridiculing, holding grudges, or wanting to cause harm, please apply the following:

Stop it!

It’s that simple. We simply have to stop judging others and replace judgmental thoughts and feelings with a heart full of love for God and His children. God is our Father. We are His children. We are all brothers and sisters. I don’t know exactly how to articulate this point of not judging others with sufficient eloquence, passion, and persuasion to make it stick. I can quote scripture, I can try to expound doctrine, and I will even quote a bumper sticker I recently saw. It was attached to the back of a car whose driver appeared to be a little rough around the edges, but the words on the sticker taught an insightful lesson. It read, “Don’t judge me because I sin differently than you.” (The Merciful Obtain Mercy)

The World Today

Why is the world so full of hate? I turn around and its all I see. The hearts of men shall wax cold, and they certainly have. Who has time for anyone else any more? Who takes the time to stop and share a smile, or a thank you? We live in such a fast-food tailored world, "We know what we want and we want it NOW". We expect everyone, and everything to be tailored to us and our needs, and when something doesn't fit those needs, its alright, because it can just be replaced. We seem to forget that the world doesn't revolve around us, and we, truly, are the ones who need to be changing, not those around us.

"Perfection comes not in this life but in the next life. Don’t demand things that are unreasonable, but demand of yourself improvement." - Russel M. Nelson

This truly is the ultimate goal in this life: Improvement. As soon as we try to take on everything, or demand perfection of others, we burn ourselves and others out. We slow down and become discouraged, frustrated and unhappy. Pretty soon we begin to lose our purpose and beliefs, letting ourselves become vulnerable to the temptations and power of the devil.

"For behold, it is not meet that I should command in all things; for he that is compelled in all things, the same is a slothfuland not a wise servant; wherefore he receiveth no reward. Verily I say, men should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will, and bring to pass much righteousness;" - Doctrine and Covenants 58:26-27

Repentence Is Not a One-Time Thing

Come, follow me


Christ came to call the SINNERS to Repentance

Not the perfect people. Church is likewise for the sinners, and not the perfect people. As far I as can tell, we all should be going to church, because we're all still here on earth.

Truth: Imperfect men can organize and operate a church, but a perfect man organized one church, and restored it through a living prophet. While prophets even may be imperfect, its the doctrine and teachings of a perfect man that we are all following, abiding, and living by: The Doctrine of Christ. Just what did Christ teach us? Perhaps the simple lyrics of a beloved children's song can open our eyes to the simplistic beauty this complex world blinds us from:

Love one another as Jesus loves you.
Try to show kindness in all that you do.
Be gentle and loving in deed and in thought,
For these are the things Jesus taught

      Reminding yourself that "we are all human" is one of the best things we can do on a regular basis. So much of what we worry about is stuff that we can chalk up to just being human. I mean, we all make mistakes and act silly and do awkward things on a regular basis. We just human yo!

      An important lesson for all to learn. We are mortal human beings, doing the best we can. We are all flawed, but with hard work, obedience, and the Atonement of Christ, we can be perfected. Kudos, keep 'em coming!
