Matthew 5:48
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

That is quite a command. How can a human prone to sin ever be perfect in the same way God is perfect? We cannot. So why would Jesus command this? The word is “as.”. It doesn’t say be equal to God. There is no way we could ever do that. We are to live as closely as we can as imitators/followers of God. He sent His Son, Jesus, to walk and live among mankind so we could see how to walk. God is love and we are to emmerse ourselves in His love and allow it to pour out through us to all those around us. Our question is do we allow ourselves to be emmersed in God’s love and if so, do we allow it to flow through us to those around us without judgement or criticism? If we’re really honest we must admit we fall far short. Let us take some time today to ask God where we are blocking His love and how we can spread what we have received to others. Let us be willing to be perfectly in the midst of God’s love.
