    BE YE PERFECT

    The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, King of Israel: to know wisdom and instruction to perceive the words of understanding. PROVERBS 1:1-2

    There is no easy way to be a Christian. Christianity requires a lot of effort, sacrifice and commitment. The heart of the Christian life is to love the way Christ taught and lived. Though it sounds simple, it is terribly difficult. The temptation is to throw up your hands and say, " I'm not Christ! I can't do the things He did!" Still, Christ Himself said that we should " Be...perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect" ( MATTHEW 5:48). How can Christ ask such a thing of us?

    Christ never for one minute thought that we would be perfect as God is. He knows that we are imperfect and sinful. He also knows how much God loves us and wants us to grow and be happy. With His help, we can find joy and maturity. To assist us, God gave His Word, the Holy Scriptures. If we will be dedicated to reading the Bible regularly and do it prayerfully, God will help us to understand it; and through understanding, we will be able to live more perfectly, the way God intends.

    Dear Heavenly Father, Help us to know You, and through knowing You, help us to be like You. Make us a faithful and loving follower, and be with us and guide us this day, and every day to come. Amen and Amen.
