Look at us, all starved for those perfected ideals like success, stuff, brilliance, and unattainable appeal. All skin and bone and oh so forgetful there was His breath put in our lungs, His blood in our veins and His flesh wrapped round to make us all whole. We need not perfection; people of excellence simply need Him.

For it is by His grace; incomparably rich and loving grace by which you were saved and set free to live alive and whole and well.
