He isn’t bothered by imperfect people like me. I know that because He deliberately chose a dozen imperfect people. He spent a lot of time with them. He was grieved by them, grew impatient with them, mistrusted them and tolerated them. He didn’t reject them. He took them for who they were and loved them anyway. If He was able to do that with the disciples, doesn’t that mean He’s willing to do that with me? With you? He was confident that no matter how imperfect His followers were, they could be more because of His love. Just another reason I like Jesus.
