Don’t you love oxymorons, things that shouldn’t go together but do?

Oxymorons/oxymora:

  • Tiny elephant
  • Deafening silence
  • virtual reality

WE HUMANS are also an oxymoron–imperfectly perfect. Here’s why:

  • We are perfect because we were created in God’s own image (Genesis 1:27)
  • We are perfect because our God/Creator is perfect (Matthew 5:48)
  • We “imperfectly” show our perfection because we humans make lots of mistakes and fall short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23)
  • When we’re totally honest with God about our mess-ups, our perfect God is right there to help us (Psalm 119:25+)
  • And FORGIVENESS is a way to heal the hurt our imperfections cause God/Jesus and other people. Jesus forgave us first, so that we might forgive others. (Ephesians 4:31-32)
  • Being imperfectly perfect is an honor, & a humbling thing, too. How do you think of yourself?

Okay, so Friday movie night  isn’t exactly an oxymoron, but it’s a weird combo of events–Moana and St. Patrick’s Day. But it works…how?

See you Wednesday, fellow oxymorons! (I mean that in the most loving way possible.)
