Gaining Altitude — Growth Opportunities for the Week

Chaplain (Maj.) Jason Knudeson
412th TW chaplain

Through our character – an opportunity to reflect on important issues in our community
Leo Tolstoy, whose writings had a profound impact on such pivotal 20th century figures as Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr., wrote, “If you look for perfection, you’ll never be content.” This next week, especially in the midst of the holiday busyness, remind yourself, you are not and never will be perfect.

– Thank God that He is perfect and ask Him to help you understand and accept your imperfections while giving you the desire and strength to make changes in your life where they are needed.
