Yeah! Nobody is perfect! We are all projects in the making in the hands of the Lord. We are all still growing and getting better by the day.
We also often bring with us old practices before we got born again and we still indulge in some of these things even though the Bible says we are to put off the old man.
Even the best of saints will still make mistakes occasionally. And there is provision for this by God in the scriptures.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1Jn 1:9 (KJV)
However, there is a clear difference between making a mistake and having a character defect.
There is also a difference between having a character defect and working on it, and having a HABITUAL character defect that one is not willing to work on.
The former is actively working on it and seeking all help, while the latter is just frolicking in the pool of iniquity because it’s already a habit.
Old habits die hard, they say. The person has to be committed to changing and turning a new leaf. If you are in love with someone who is unwilling to make changes as regards character, then you really need to be extremely careful.
If he or she keeps telling you and promising you that change will come after wedding, that promise might as well be an empty one. There must be genuine repentance and the willingness to change.
However, before there can be a change, there has to be truthfulness and honesty as regard what needs to change. In denial, change is impossible because you cannot change what is deemed as inexistent.
Seek counsel properly and don’t marry blindly.
God bless you!

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
1 John 1:8-9 (MSG) If we claim that we’re free of sin, we’re only fooling ourselves. A claim like that is errant nonsense. On the other hand, if we admit our sins — make a clean breast of them — he won’t let us down; he’ll be true to himself. He’ll forgive our sins and purge us of all wrongdoing.
ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
List your strengths and weaknesses.
