Kindness: Cultivating Self-Compassion, Letting God of Perfectionism
1 John 3v16–24
Perfectionism is not the same thing as striving to be your best. Perfectionism is the belief that if we live perfect and act perfect we can minimize or avoid the pain of blame, judgment, and shame. Perfectionism is about trying to earn approval and acceptance. The gospel sets us free to love ourselves and others because he first loved us and laid down his life.
