God knows we can only be so strong. He knows we fall short. He knows we need rescuing, which is why He sent Jesus Christ to save us. Trying to deal with our battles on our own without acknowledging that we need His perfect grace will get us nowhere. We are all imperfect and we are all in need of His perfect grace. So say goodbye to those worries that God can never use you for the ministry, or that you’re not qualified to have a fulfilling career, or smart enough to have an enjoyable college experience. Say goodbye to thinking that you can’t grow in your faith because you’ve never been able to get closer to God in the past. God isn’t asking you to give Him perfection. He’s asking you to give Him all of you: flaws, awkwardness, weakness, shame, sin and all. Give it all to Him and let Him set you free in Jesus’ name, wrapping you in His perfect grace.
Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. - 2 Corinthians 12:9

If you're still taking prompts, how about a threesome between Matthew, Alfred and Arthur, where Alfred is bad at giving blow jobs so Arthur has to teach him how to do it right and Matthew is the practice dummy. Thank you!
