Monday Meditation

I forgot to include the weekly meditation yesterday. I apologize - but I don't think it's too late for a moment of meditation.

Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God. Deuteronomy 18:13

How many times have we heard it said, "Nobody's perfect." Well that's not exactly true. God calls his children to perfection; not just in the scripture mentioned above but we see this mandate in several others as well. (For instance see: Genesis 6:9; Genesis 17:1; Job 1:1; Matthew 5:48).

The perfection that believers are to strive for, is God's perfection - not man's. We can never be good enough to please all the human race. But we can be perfect in God's sight and he is the one we ultimately want to please. We are perfect when we walk with God and follow after his ways. When love as God has loved us; when we forgive as God has forgiven us; when we are merciful and kind as God is merciful and kind to us, etc...then we are perfect in His sight.
Be blessed and be perfect.
