August 11: Perfect

Scripture Lesson: Matthew 5:48

On this date in 1981, Ray Searage pitched two-plus innings of hitless relief to be credited with the win in New York’s 4-2 victory over the Cubs at Wrigley Field. With his an eighth-inning single, Searage gained the distinction of being the only Met player to have compiled a 1.000 batting average (1 for 1) and a 1.000 winning percentage (1-0) while playing with the team. Searage is the current pitching coach for the Pirates.

Today’s verse, from the Sermon on the Mount, seems impossible at first reading. Jesus told his followers that they should be perfect as the Heavenly Father is perfect. None of us, any more than the disciples, have reached perfection. The only perfect person to have ever walked on the earth is Jesus. So why does He call us to be perfect? When we set goals in life, the higher the goals the higher we will be able to reach. If we strive to reach the goal of perfection in the way we live for Jesus, we are more likely to get closer to that goal. We will never reach the goal of perfection, but we can make the effort instead of saying it is impossible and not even trying!

  1. How do we strive to be perfect in the game of baseball?

  2. How can we use the same tactic in striving for perfection with Christ?

  3. In our lives with Christ, what should be our goal?

Hard works helps us improve in the game. Hard work helps us improve in our living for Jesus!
