Only the Blessed Virgin Mary and our Lord were free from sin and it’s devastating effects.
St.Paul, in Romans Chapter 3:23 tells us, “All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God, and are justified freely by the grace through the redemption that came from Christ Jesus.”
We all have character defects, some more than others. It is our responsibility to try and harness these defects. To admit a defect is an act of humility, and it is only in admitting that we can start to move beyond, and thus forward. We face the demon face to face.
It is easy to put ourselves down when we keep repeating the same defect over and over. If we keep trying, success will come. Henry Ford, the inventor of the first automobile once said, “Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.”
Jesus, because of His love for us, fell 3 times on His way to Calvary. Each time He fell He got up and continued His journey. (thank you Jesus)
There is never a better time than the present to get up and try again, if a defect keeps you from moving ahead in your journey of life.
What defect are you willing to try and change? Remember, if you spot it in others, chances are you got it.
May God Be with you,
