Signs You’ve Been Living Under False Guilt

Title: Signs You’ve Been Living Under False Guilt
Artwork by: YMI X @emili.ting
Description: Do you often feel like you’re drowning in guilt? Like whatever you do isn’t enough, and that you can always “be better”?

I’m not a good daughter/son. 
I’m not doing enough as a partner. As a parent. 
I could be a better friend. I should be a better friend.
I can do more at school/work. At home. In church. 

We live in a world that subtly promotes perfectionism as a virtue, that slyly pushes us to always be our best and never disappoint. 

Yet God’s notion of perfection is different—because He fulfills it Himself. Through Jesus’s work on the cross, we have the righteousness we need not and will never achieve on our own. 

Yes, we’re not perfect. Yes, we have lots to improve on. But we don’t have to live with constant guilt. Because we are in Jesus, He’s got the perfection covered.
