Practice does NOT make perfect

For decades, most of us grew up hearing the phrase "Practice Makes Perfect." At age 14 or so, I can tell something was wrong with this message. I told myself that one day, I will change this way of thinking with a simple quote that doesn't need much explanation. Practice makes Progress was born and I eventually submitted my poorly written piece to the library of congress - they got the message and that's all that matters.

No one is perfect and no one will ever be. Christians believe Romans 3:10 that none is righteous. Spiritual purity is by the grace of God that is received through the blood of His son Jesus. But as humans, we can practice all we want and we will still make mistakes every now and then because you can never be perfect. Even Micheal Jordan still misses uncontested free throws.

However, Practice Makes Progress. You will get better or make progress both physically and spiritually if you don't quit. The progress may be small or big but you will definitely make progress. Start thinking about making positive progress in anything you do and ignore the negativity from the naysayers. From now on, when you hear someone tell you "practice makes perfect," tell them life is not perfect and your goal is to keep making positive progress.
