pedestal (n.)- A base or support for an upright structure or part, as a column or statue.
Never put someone on a pedestal, for they will always let you down. God made humans imperfect so that we would turn to Him; for the truth is- He is the only one who is perfect, and He will never let us down. God allows us to make mistakes so that we can grow closer to Him and learn from them. When someone lets us down or does something to hurt us (emotionally or physically), we must strive for forgiveness. In the end don't we want to be forgiven? God forgives us, so why shouldn't we forgive those who have harmed us? If we stop putting people on pedestals or believing they are perfect, we will never be disappointed or disillusioned again.
The forgiving state of mind is a magnetic power for attracting good. No good thing can ne withheld from the forgiving state of mind.
Okay, I'm stepping down from my soapbox now.
