THE PERFECT FATHER
Matthew 5:48 (NIV)
48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
You have a father who is perfect. Please let that thought settle in your heart and mind today. Don’t put it through the filter of your own experience. Just receive it, hold on to it, be comforted by it, strengthened by it, encouraged by it, healed by it. You have a perfect father.
Jesus said it in his sermon on the mount. Your father in heaven is perfect.
