This morning I was thinking about how often people disappoint me, but how Jesus never does. I don't think it matters who the person is -- anyone can disappoint us. But I think the disappointments are greater when it is someone we expect a lot from, someone we think is supposed to be a Christian, or especially someone who we think is a great Christian example to others. But really it shouldn't surprise me or cause me such great disappointment when this happens, because those people are human. I have probably disappointed people too many times to mention. I disappoint myself sometimes and wonder how I can do some of the things I do and think some of the things I think and still call myself a Christian.
Jesus is the only standard we should measure ourselves against. He is the ultimate role model and example we should try to be like. He will never disappoint.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. Romans 7:15
