Family Reflection Video: Life is About Progress, Not Perfection

Family Reflection Video: Life is About Progress, Not Perfection

faithfulness  |  acceptance

You’re not the only one losing the way on your relentless quest for goodness.

Most of us want to be good. However, there are times when we don’t have the strength to accomplish (complete goodness). Weighed down by possessions, including our emotions, attitudes, and fears, we get distracted and become derailed.

As we learn from the lives of saints, and close family members and friends, people are capable of transformation. God gives us countless chances and opportunities to spread His love every day. With your family, discuss how you can work together to be open to God’s grace.

Remember my friends; life is about progress, not perfection. God bless you and your family.
