Aim For Perfection

Scripture reading

Finally brothers, good-by. Aim for perfection, listen to my appeal, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.
–2 Corinthians 13:11

Thought of the Day

I recently read an amazing fact about perfection. A couple of years ago a high school baseball player named Robbie Smart had a perfect day at the plate during a game. He hit a solo home run, a two run shot, a three run blast, and closed out the day with a monster grand slam. There isn’t even a category in the record books for a hitting exhibition like that.
Robbie had a pretty good game that day. I don’t know if he set out to accomplish what he did, but I can guess that he did “aim for perfection”. If we all tried to live our lives with that goal and aim, in regard to our faith, there is not telling what might happen. Oh, I forgot. The apostle Paul does tell us what will happen.

Prayer

God of Love. Help my aim. Amen.
