“Be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect” (Matthew 5:48).

“Be perfect.” Jesus didn’t say that because you’re not allowed to make mistakes. “Perfect” (teleios) means to become complete, whole, mature, and to be filled with God’s character. Every time you fail, it’s an opportunity to grow closer to Jesus by letting him transform your heart and mind to become more like him.

Be perfect.
