What Are Your Expectations?

pERFECT pEOPLEThe words shown above are completely true. I have wondered why members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who are striving to be faithful, should come under fire because they have flaws? It is a mystery to me that people who strive to behave badly and succeed are tolerated by our society; whereas, people who strive to keep the commandments and fail, are condemned. “The Church is not a place where perfect people gather to say perfect things, or have perfect thoughts, or have perfect feelings. The Church is a place where imperfect people gather to provide encouragement, support, and service to each other…We are here with the same purpose: to learn to love Him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves” (Joseph B. Wirthlin). We should not be discouraged in our feeble but earnest efforts to emulate the attributes of our Savior, Jesus Christ. The call to discipleship is a call to continue, to never give up trying to be like Him. This I promise to do!
