Matthew 5:48 says, “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” I wear myself out trying to look perfect. I say look and not be, because I’m in enough reality to know I won’t reach that goal. In reading the verses surrounding Matthew 5:48, I discovered that God’s perfect has nothing to do with the flawless, ageless, sinless I imagine. It is instead about forgiveness and unselfish love, woven as a beautiful tapestry within one’s heart.
