My best is good enough for God because He gave me the ability to do my best- and no more. So it should be good enough to satisfy me as well. Then why isn’t it? Does it come from my prideful desire to be one of the best? Does it come from selfish satisfaction in proving my intelligence? Or is it the fear of humbling failure that stirs the craving for exceptional work? Whatever it is, I need to eliminate this fallacious mindset, that only causes me to undermine my God-given skills and underestimate the intelligence that is, in actuality, present in me.
