2 Corinthians 12:9 “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.'”

The Scene: A picture frame without any picture or object upon which to focus, called “Perfection”.

2 Corinthians 12:10 “That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weakness, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

Perfection in this life is unattainable, except through God’s mercy and grace. We may not have to go through the trials like the Apostle Paul encountered, but we will all face hardships of various  kinds.  We will be  stronger for enduring the tests if we depend on our Lord to bring us through it. Our faith will be made stronger through Him.

Psalm 119:96 “To all perfection I see a limit; but your commands are boundless.”

Fear of erring, perfectionism, can be the devil’s ploy, to prevent mankind from acting in faith.” God loves His people more than they will ever know,” the Holy Spirit said.
