You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48)

The Bible verse printed above is a solemn reminder of the perfect standard of holiness to which God calls every person. For me, this verse is also a reminder of how far short we all fall of Godís glorious standard. The preceding verses in Matthew chapter 5 spell out some of the standard God has for us. For example, Jesus said our righteousness must exceed the righteousness of religious leaders, or we will not get into heaven (5:20). The people who first heard Jesus speak these words would have considered this an impossibility.

A few verses later, Jesus said we should not only avoid the sin of murder, but anger also makes us liable to judgment (5:21-22). Jesus gives other examples of how our thoughts can condemn us in verses 27 through 37. Then Jesus says that we should not resist when people do evil to us, and that we should love our enemies and even pray for them (5:38-47).
