St. Paul explained how it really is to be human when he said, “I do not do the good I want to do; instead, I do the evil that I do not want to do”.
Now here is a bloke who tried to do the right thing even though he admitted he failed from time to time. It seems he ended up OK. And so can we.
When our individual final siren sounds and we reach the gates of Heaven, I am sure our entry inside will be determined, not by the level of perfection we have achieved, but because we really tried to be the person God created us to be.
It’s a good idea, from time to time, to discuss with God our efforts, our successes and our failures.
To try, does not necessarily mean to succeed, but if we keep trying this can only mean that eventually, with God’s help, our persistence will overcome our individual disabilities.
