Aim for Perfection
Scripture: 2 Corinthians 13: 11 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.
Observation: I aim for mediocrity and usually hit the target. I barely get by and my walk with God seems to get slower. I know in my heart the things God desires, but my laziness, my own selfish desires seem to take over. God gave me perfection and all He has, yet I repay Him by giving what I want, not what He requires.
Application: Aim for perfection. Set my sights higher and plan how to succeed for God. Give God more of my time, love, talents and obedience. My thought life should be focused on the things of God not me. I need to get my distractions away and be focused on why I’m here.
Prayer: Dear Lord I need you to make me a better servant for you. Place in my heart the bulls eye of perfection, may I always aim for the prize of pleasing You.
