Your Father in Heaven is Perfect

on October 22, 2012

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48) We take this passage from the famous Sermon on the Mount and make two comments on it.

One, God is our father. A human being is a compound entity consisting of a spirit and a physical body. God is the father of the spirit within each  human being. Because he is the common father of all the people in the world, we all can and should trust Him and ask him for the things we need. Also because God is the Father of all of us, we all are brothers and sisters, members of one very large family. Every person, of every race, living in every country belongs to this family. Our common father loves each one of us even though we number in the billions. Each one of us should love the others because of this brotherhood we all share. When we take part as citizens in governing our communities, states, and nations, we should treat each other as beloved brothers and sisters and look to our common father for guidance about what we should do and how we should do it.

Two, most people suppose they are good people. Perhaps they do not realize how high our Lord set the moral bar. None of the billions of God’s children on the Earth is good in and of himself. Every one of us needs a savior, even Christ the Lord.
