Can’t be perfect? Do what you can.

I’ve been reading the Didache lately, an important discipleship treatise in the early church. It was probably written in the late first century.

It quotes a good deal of Scripture, and speaks primarily to would-be disciples about choosing between “two ways, one of life and one of death.” The early church held it in high regard, considering it to be at least comparable to canonical Scripture and worthy of study. I’ll have a chance to post more about the Didache this summer.

Here’s some great advice from Didache 6:2: “For if you are able to bear the whole yoke of the Lord, you will be perfect. But if you are not able, do what you can.”

That much I can do.
