Be A Perfectionist!

Michael Pickford

Have you ever known anyone who has the characteristics of what we term a “perfectionist?” I have. Sometimes, these people can be somewhat annoying. Everything has to be “just right.” They even take notice of small details which the average person would never see. They’ll scour the house for these little “imperfections.” Everything has to be perfect or they just can’t be comfortable.

What about Christians? Shouldn’t we strive to be spiritual “perfectionists?” Jesus said, “Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect” (Matt. 5:48). Striving for spiritual perfection should be the aim of every child of God. Sometimes, I think we get comfortable with those “little sins” in our lives. We should scour our souls and eliminate or straighten out any little thing that is out of place. These “little sins” which seem so insignificant in our lives will serve to be our demise spiritually. We are called upon to “lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us...” (Heb 12:1). Be a perfectionist!
