One cannot engage in a scriptural study of Jesus Christ without encountering his words in Matthew 5: 48 and 3 Nephi 12: 48.
Therefore I would that ye should be perfect even as I, or your Father who is in heaven is perfect. 3 Nephi 12: 48
I know I am not the only one who is overwhelmed by this command.
And I wonder: How do I get there?
I am learning it is a process.
We begin by learning about Him. “It is impossible for [us] to be saved in ignorance.” The more we know about the Savior’s ministry and mission–the more we understand His doctrine and what He did for us–the more we know that He can provide the power that we need for our lives. Russell M. Nelson
I am learning not to compare, but to put things in perspective.
“Perspective is a giver. Comparison takes. Perspective is generous. Comparison pares down the loveliness of your life until it appears a thin shred of its former glory. Perspective carries us through life laughing. Comparison evokes cursing and frowns and grumbling.”
