Our high-tech, uber-connected society puts pressures on us to present and maintain a “perfect” life. This is especially true in the world of social media.
Many of us try to look better than we really are in the different aspects of our life, from our relationships, finances, and faith, to our work and play. But as we create and “advertise” these illusions, we may feel lonely and disconnected from life and each other, and end up feeling less than we really are.
Sometimes these pressures towards perfectionism take their toll on us and others. We become image conscious and lose our real selves. How can we live a more authentic life by reflecting the image of God rather than creating a false sense of self that we show the world?
This July, join us for (im)Perfect, a worship series about real life.
Some scripture to ponder:
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.
