Through little things come to perfection in our lives.
Today, at every turn, advertisements that say everything are printing on us all is perfect; everything is great and perfect. In the Gospel, Jesus Christ called us all: “Be ye therefore perfect, as he is your heavenly Father is perfect ”(Mt. 5.48).
The Lord Jesus puts the perfection of Heavenly Father before the eyes of His hearers as an unattainable ideal, but he wants to challenge them to constant efforts about perfection.1 To be perfect as the Father means to be perfect in His love. We all are, after all, God’s children. Therefore, we can be perfect as our Father is perfect. A request The new law is much greater than the requirement of the old law. This is the requirement that opens the inner existence of renewed people, showing them that they can attain such a high degree and have such a high life.2 If perfection was absolutely impossible, Jesus would not pay attention to us at all. We can deduce that it is possible to obtain at least a certain degree of perfection.
The Lord Jesus encourages us to be perfect. But he didn’t stop at the words. He also gave us his example. Every act of Jesus was a testimony, and living testimony, that perfection can be achieved. Yes, our perfection will indeed be only a part of his perfection, but it is this fraction of perfection that will be our ticket to heaven. Since God sent us as a witness to His own Son, it is clear to Him for us; it matters a lot. He loves us very much. It is difficult for us people to understand and even harder to talk about it. But with the language of our heart, every single person can very well express God’s love. Then turn it into “change” and capitalize on it. Which means turn into petty and benefit? It is the daily activity of a Christian. These are good deeds to be on the agenda of each one of us. These little acts of love everyone should act so that all our brothers and sisters around us can live with us more pleasant. And also for everyone to know in our actions the message of Jesus, the message of love.
One story also tells that perfection needs to be built in small parts: The famous Michelangelo worked on the sculpture. A certain of his friends watched him work. Sometime later, this friend came again, and it seemed to him that since his last visit, the artist did not touch his work. But Michelangelo told him, “You’re wrong. I wiped out this part, here I removed something; I changed the line there, I gave more expression to this pen, I made it stand out to this muscle. ” Very well, ” said the visitor. “But they’re just trifles.” “Possibly,” -replied the artist. “But remember that trifles add perfection, and perfection is not an easy business.” Our job is to bring these little things into our lives. Let’s try to be perfect, and let’s do it with everyday little things every day. Let us pray: Thank you, God, for sending us your only Son, who he gave us an example of how to come to you and become perfect. Please give us the strength to persevere this way.
