(Advent) Self-Talk: Unrelenting Standards

Ephesians 1:3-7

Unrealistic expectations of yourself, or unrelenting standards, is a schema we develop by adopting certain rules from authority figures on how we should arrange our lives. With unrelenting standards also comes the anxiety, pressure, and compulsion to be perfect and meet these impossible expectations. We unknowingly perpetuate and attempt to maintain these standards to avoid judgment and disappointment from others. The gospel meets us at this critical point to set us free from these standards, shows us a standard of radical acceptance, and invites us to learn and relearn a pure, transcendent love.
