Luke 6:40

"The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master."
Luke 6:40

Yesterday we talked about how God doesn't give us things to do that he doesn't also give us the power and the possibility of accomplishing.  And that includes perfection. :)  Obviously it isn't a commandment to become perfect immediately, with a snap of the fingers... it's something that might take us a while. :)  But this is a great promise... the Lord tells us that we aren't above him... and that is pretty apparent if we ever really think about it... but that we have the chance at being like him... on the same level.  that's mind-boggling.  We limit our own possibilities so much, thinking that we can't make a difference to this or that, or what is one person against huge things like war and death and hunger... but then, this... we have the chance to be like God.  To make every difference, to be a moving force through everything.  How can we ever say that we don't have the power to change... ourselves *or* the world around us??  We have the power to be a positive force in the world... and the more we practice using that power, the closer we will be to perfection... as individuals, and as a community.  so... let's do it. :)
