What does mean Perfect?
Many of us can define the word Perfect.
or by means we even can discuss in group or privately about certain person whether they are perfect or not.
We got our differences of scales on what Perfect means.
But that’s our human scales and ideologies.
what about God?
how does He define Perfect according to the Bible?
If we read the books of Kings and Chronicles, we see that the kings were more or less
assessed by whether or not their hearts were perfect toward God. Of Asa, Jehoshaphat,
Hezekiah, and others, it is said that they had a heart perfect toward God. But the great example of a man whose heart was perfect toward God was David. He was the measuring stick against
which other kings were assessed.
Keep in mind that we are not talking about a heart that is perfect, but a heart that is perfecttoward God.
David was not always morally perfect. As you know, he committed adultery.
Although the Scripture does not condone adultery, it is not here speaking about moral
perfection; rather, it is speaking of David’s attitude toward God.
In Exodus 20:1–3 we find the first requirement for having a heart that is perfect toward
God. “And God spoke all these words, saying, “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out
of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.”
To be perfect toward God means that one has no other gods before Him. The real issue for David,
and for us, is “Who is your god?”
When we say PERFECT towards God, means it is not defined if you are good by what the people sees, or if you are better than the other by physical eyes and activities.
It means, are you doing what God says is right? Are you doing what is according to God’s commands?
So ask yourself..
Who is Your God????
