Words of wisdom

It is not the healthy who need the doctor, but the sick. I came to call not the upright, but sinners.

Mark 2:17

I came across the above today and it was very comforting. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been exploring religion and spirituality more recently for numerous reasons. I sometimes wonder if perhaps I’m not fit to do so because I don’t always behave the way you’d expect someone of faith to behave. But the above words are true. Why would I need guidance if I was already my best self. If I was already perfect. If I knew how to live life perfectly already, then scriptures would only be preaching to choir. It’s for imperfect people who make mistake after mistake and are a little lost in how to be our best selves. I dare say that we can all probably include ourselves in this category.

So let’s take the above words to heart and not turn people away from relgion, spirituality, and God because they’re “unworthy”.


In other news, went back to Din Tai Fung again (this time with one of my sisters and her husband). We didn’t think there would be too many people becuase of the heavy rain, but it turns out a bunch of other people had the same idea. We had to wait two and a half hours to be seated. The food was definitely worth the wait and it gave us all a nice opportunity to have a nice conversation.
