How to be Perfect

Not that it's easy, of course, and only our Father can be perfect, but we can try:

1. In Character – aspire to like Christ as much as possible.

2. In Holiness – devote ourselves to God's desires, carrying his love and mercy into the world.

3. In Maturity – mature in our love and devotion to God, learning as we try to live in Christ Jesus.

4. In Love – we seek to love other as completely as our Father loves us.

[Paraphrased from a footnote to Matthew 5:48 in the Life Application Bible.]
