Is 98% Enough?

Is 98% enough?  In school it's an A.  If my kids bring home a 98, I'm thrilled.  If I paid 98% of my power bill, the power company wouldn't be happy with me.  Well, God leans towards the power company way of thinking.  98% of obedience is still disobedience.  It is still choosing to CHOOSE your own WILL instead of GOD's and that's wrong.  This is a hard pill to swallow.  Pastor JD really punched me in the nose with these words today.  I always felt that if I tried my best it would be good enough.  In a way it is, as long as I am giving 100%.  But most of the time my best is not truly my best and I blame lots of things for it.  I'm tired, I'm weak, I'm only human, I can ask forgiveness later...all reasons for not giving 100%.  Do you give 100%?  We should all try harder to please God knowing that we still have His mercy but He does expect us to repent and turn from our wicked ways.  I know I am turning a new leaf today.  God be with me and I pray He is with you.
