The Alternative to Good Enough

We contort away from Him, disfiguring ourselves into an approximation of wholeness we perceive to be right, or, at least, “Good Enough.”

“Good Enough.”

“Good Enough.”

How good, is “Good Enough?”

How good is “Good Enough,” and when we arrive there, how will we know?

How will we know, how good is “Good Enough?”

The answer is, the answer can only be: We will not know. We cannot know. We will not know, because we cannot know. We cannot know, because this is not taught, because this is not Truth.

How good is “Good Enough,” is not taught because it is not Truth, part of Truth.

It is not Truth, part of Truth.

How good is “Good Enough,” is not Truth, part of Truth, and thus it is not taught, it is not taught.

But what is taught, is the one alternative.

What is taught, is perfection’s pursuit.

What is taught, is to never stop growing toward Him, toward His light, toward His love, toward His love, in pursuit of a perfect union with Him, in pursuit of perfection.
