Moral perfection.

Only Jesus can claim moral perfection. Anyone else who says they have a clean heart needs to read the ninth commandment about lying. Claiming a pure heart means every decision and motivation has no fault. We wouldn’t need Jesus if we could attain moral perfection ourselves.

Coaching tennis camp, playing Pacman, a game of tag using the lines on the tennis court, the students can’t run; they must walk fast.

“Coach, she only tagged me ’cause she ran.”

“Guess what? You were running too. You’re Pacman.”

Children or adults, we quickly blame others, not looking at our role in the situation. We all have room for improvement because no one has a clean heart. Accepting the uncleanliness within helps us embrace Jesus, allow the Holy Spirit to guide and assist us in making better choices and take responsibility for our actions.

Thank God for Jesus; allowing Him to cleanse our hearts helps us become better people.

Lord, forgive us for claiming moral perfection. As we move through our days, search our hearts and show us our imperfections. Help us become more like Jesus as we pursue You, striving to honor and glorify Christ. IJNIP. Amen
