“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48). In this verse, Jesus is issuing a call to His Disciples to strive for perfect righteousness. Though in our human sinful state we can never attain it, we must press on daily to perfect righteousness. Righteousness is to consume us from the inside out. It must start in the heart and flow into our actions and thoughts. We must allow this perfect righteousness to conform us to the will of the Father; to make us like Him. This is the only alternative since God is perfect so should we be. Strive to be like your heavenly Father, be perfectly righteous in all you are and in all you do.
Have a Blessed Day!
