In this Life Lesson I talk about the YouVersion “Streaks” and the fact that no one is perfect but Jesus.
(For Your convince, I’ve pasted the lesson so that you don’t have to scroll through Life Lessons 😁)
If you have the app YouVersion you know that they have this “streak” thing where you can build up your streaks and get a really high one. You also know that if you miss ONE day it disappears and your heart drops. You are down in the dumps, the whole day just got worse because you realized that you didn’t log into AN APP yesterday! This just happened to me today. I got so frustrated because I had to start all over again. That is what’s wrong with the whole “streak” thing. It is very good for motivation and now I’m in the habit of reading my bible everyday because I was motivated so much that I got a 300 day streak! Then, I forgot. What’s wrong with the “streak” is that you can lose your motivation the second you realize that you lost that “streak”, now you don’t even want to see the app anymore. And you lose your habit of reading God’s word everyday. “NOT ONE person is perfect” that’s what my dad told me when I was frustrated. “Since no one is perfect you will forget. That doesn’t mean that God is angry at you. That doesn’t mean you messed up. That doesn’t mean you sinned. You just forgot.”.
Let me wrap it up with this, You are Human. You aren’t perfect. Only Jesus is perfect. Romans 3:10 says “As it is written: ‘None is righteous, no, not one;’”. And, Romans 3:23 says “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”. So if you just lost your “streak” remember that you shouldn’t be doing it because your friends challenged you and you don’t care (like I had mentioned before in a previous Life Lesson “More Time to Act or to Be?”) you should be doing it to get into the habit of reading God’s word, and so that you can learn.
