Ladies, in a world that focuses so much on beauty, we often compare ourselves to those who supposedly emulate beauty or perfection in our own eyes. And when we’re not comparing ourselves to a famous person, we’re comparing ourselves to someone closer to us, such as a friend or family member. But ladies, did you know that even our role model for perfection is flawed?
No one is perfect. We’re not supposed to be. So when we set ourselves up for perfection, we’re going to fail. When we fail the test—when we’re not as thin or pretty or tall as this supposedly perfect person—we feel frustrated.
In today’s Caught Being Godly, I want to share a clip from Sadie Robertson of the Duck Dynasty Robertson clan. Surprisingly, she too struggles with her self-worth and physical beauty. She too has put together a false image of how she should be and compared herself to others. And she wants to share that testimony with you.
Check out her story and share your thoughts in the comments below.
Ladies, there’s really no standard for perfection, because perfection doesn’t exist in anyone. Only Jesus was perfect and He was God. So trying to be something impossible is only damaging to our confidence and self-esteem. Now this doesn’t mean we shouldn’t strive to be the best we can be individually. However, our focus shouldn’t be on our looks, but rather on our hearts.
Because, ultimately, true beauty is only achieved from the inside out.
Ladies, do you “live original”?
