Why God doesn’t give me the perfect __________.

If God gave me the perfect home, I would have no need for my eternal home in heaven.

If God gave me the perfect church, I wouldn’t long for the perfect fellowship awaiting with the saints.

If God made me the perfect pastor, my church would have no need for the perfect Shepherd, and I would have no need for His perfect shepherding.

If God gave me the perfect relationship, I wouldn’t see my need for a relationship with Jesus.

If God gave me the perfect marriage, I wouldn’t long for the consummation of Christ’s marriage to His Church.

If God gave me the perfect parents, I would see no need for a perfect Heavenly Father.

If God made me the perfect person, I would have no need for the Savior who was perfect on my behalf.

If God gave me the perfect life, I would love my earthly life more than I love the God who gives eternal life.
