"Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Matthew 5,48
Christ’s standard is incredible !! Our Master encourages us with formidable courage !! He does not out it past us that we are capable to get back on our feet , get going , lead a good life and be as perfect as our Heavenly Father !! Jesus knows what dwells in man’s heart yet He still believes that the old Nicodemus is capable of being reborn, the greedy, , corrupt Zaccheus to repent, the woman caught in adultery to live a virtuous, faithful life !!
My Lord I ask for your faith, grant us that , we born in Your image and likeness , to travel this world with Your living faith , and to trust ourselves as You trust in Your children created by Your hand !!
With prayerful love,
translated by dr k.e.
‘You have heard that it was said, “You shall love your neighbour and hate your enemy.” But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be children of your Father in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax-collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers and sisters,* what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Matthew 5, 43-48
