Hi everyone, :) We had a nice lesson in Sunday School today. We are studying the New Testament, and today's lesson was from 1st and 2nd Peter. After I came home and was thinking about the lesson, I thought of something...
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Matthew 5:48
A definition of perfect is--whole or complete. So Heavenly Father is perfect, whole and complete.
How can we be perfect? Jesus was our example, and He taught us the things that we can do. If He said to be perfect 'whole and complete' then I know it is possible. To me this means if we strive to do all the things He asks us to do, if that is a goal, then we are on our way. :) There will be times when we make mistakes or have to repent but that is part of life. We sincerely repent, and forsake, HE forgives then, we start again. It is wonderful. What is your idea about this?
The words of Peter are great. He spoke of things we can do or the type of people we ought to be. If you get a chance to read his words, let me know what you think, ok?
I love to Ponder the scriptures :)
Have a wonderful week. Take care all
