“Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace” (Psalms 37:37).
Today’s Morsel: If I were to place two men before you, could you tell which was perfect and which was not? Most people, after reading scripture about King David, focus more on his writing, leadership, and downfall. Even though he’s listed as a man after God’s own heart, he was not listed as a perfect man. One would think that he would fit that bill, but he doesn’t. But on the other hand, Job is listed as a perfect and upright man. A perfect man is perfect in himself. God, having saved him from sin and filling him with his Spirit, he now remains upright in his conduct and actions forever. He remains sound and wholesome in his character and demeanor. He walks hand and hand with God and never lets go. He keeps mercy and truth around his neck so that he will never again need it. His integrity is always above reproach. He’s committed to the things of God and God’s ways. He is moral and ethically pure. Can you mark the perfect man? Look to Jesus.
Sing: To be like Jesus, to be like Jesus, on earth I long, to be like Him. All through life’s journey, from earth to glory, I only ask to be like Him.
Thought For Today: Jesus is the perfect man.
