I have been waiting for months to write a post on 10/10/10, because I think it’s such a cool date. You know me and “fun with numbers”. Imagine my disappointment when I realized that it was on the weekend. “Dime Day” was going to generate some sort of good post about being a ‘perfect 10’ or being well balanced or some other goofy thought that would have popped into my head.
But as usually, I am a little short. 1″ short of 6 feet, and posting on 10/8/10. That’s just not as cool is it? It looks more like a test result then a date!
Anyway, falling short of being the perfect 10 is ok, and today we will remind ourselves that we don’t have to have everything together and be perfect to warrant the mercy of God. Its not us, its him! Sort of like this quote from Ghandi:
“My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.”
and this from Paul in his letter to Titus:
4 But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life
Enjoy the almost perfect day!
