"I'm not a Christian because it works for me. I'll be honest - it doesn't work for me" - J. Warner Wallace
Who sets the standards in your life? What rules do you follow?
Christian apologist and Cold Case detective J. Warner Wallace explains that before being Christian, he was a god in his eyes and lived his life through his own standards, and not living up to Christ's standards.
For me, I find this video really helps to understand that there is more that people could achieve every single day; to be righteous, despite getting situations and discussions wrong. We as human beings have a choice to do what is right.
To make a choice to begin giving to others, to extend ourselves in our world, despite knowing we can never be perfect. If we make up the rules of how we live, then how do we know what is really right and wrong? This is why it's essential that we actually respect the highest true standard of living and life... To strive for perfection continuously, to do better than we did yesterday.
