Ecclesiastes 11:4 Are You A Victim of Perfectionism?

Ecclesiastes 11:4 (NCV)
Those who wait for perfect weather will never plant seeds; those who look at every cloud will never harvest crops.

Have you fallen victim to being perfect for others? Have you put so many expectations on yourself that are extremely demanding that you are constantly stressed? In today’s society, there are so many demands on how you should eat, dress, behave, and look, it’s endless. Instead of trying to live up to so many other people’s expectations which are surface, remember the only expectations that matter is God’s. As today’s scripture reminds us, those who wait for perfect weather will never plant seeds; those who look at every cloud will never harvest crops. Therefore, stop aiming to be perfect in the human eye, instead aim to be faithful and pleasing to Christ so you can reap the harvest that He has for you.
