When you fall into sin, run to Jesus and His perfect love will forgive you - Daily Bible Reflections June 16,2015

NOBODY’S PERFECT
 
“So be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.” – Matthew 5:48
 
       Nobody’s perfect! Isn’t that obvious? But notice how this has become a common and convenient excuse for many. After all, it’s “natural to commit mistakes.” We’re just human beings.
       You get caught beating the red light and you bribe the policeman to get away with it. Hey, everybody does it! Nobody’s perfect, the policeman included.
       You know of a politician who uses public funds to enrich himself and evades paying taxes. Well, it’s natural and almost expected. Nobody’s perfect!
       You hear of a married man who gets into a secret love affair again and again. Come on, we’re just human. Nobody’s perfect!
         Sure, God loves sinners and will forgive again and again.
      But I wonder why Jesus also challenged us to be perfect as our heavenly Father is. Is it to be perfectly forgiving of others and of ourselves no matter how many times we fall? Or does it also mean that we have been given the power to become better persons even when we fall, so that little by little we learn, we improve, and we are perfected by His grace and love?

Reflection: When you fall into sin, run to Jesus and His perfect love will forgive you. But let His love also transform you into the best person you are meant to be.
 
Dear Jesus, I run to You now despite my imperfections. I believe that Your love and mercy is perfecting me by Your pure grace. Amen.
 
St. John Francis Regis, pray for us.
