Trying to do “Rite”

01 Feb


My son handed me this note this morning. Two simple sentences from a young boy striving to do right, and yet in his striving still making mistakes.

Isn’t that how we all are? We strive to do right, but we fall short.

It is so good to know that our Heavenly Father is not desiring perfection. Perfection was crucified, and grace and love were poured out, erasing our mistakes. He simply desires a heart that says “I love u” in the midst of our mistakes. That is what matters most.
