The last verse in today’s reading can be very intimidating; Matthew 5:48, Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Jesus does not expect us to attain perfection, but He does expect us to strive for perfection. He also does not expect us to strive for perfection on our own, but through submission to God’s will and through the power of the Holy Spirit. Let us spend our efforts looking to God for the power and strength to be more like Christ each day.
