Each year I learn - something.
Every year I become more than I was last year.
My understanding increases.
My abilities change.
My mind and body ... constantly - always becoming!
Matthew 5:48 instructs us "be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." I hope I can do that ... is it possible - really??
How is He perfect?
Prophets teach us that being perfect means to act with in our knowledge.
Brigham Young explained this in part. [Lesson 34]
2 Timothy 3:17 teaches 'a man of God' may be perfect when 'thoroughly furnished unto all good works'. 'Perfect' in that verse is translated from a word in the Greek language that means 'suited, ready, complete'. To be perfect is to be whole. See Bible Dictionary - Perfection. I believe the term 'man' often designates 'humankind' - all of us ... men and women together.
I have so much to learn, so much to do!
Will I ever have enough time?
James 3:2 teaches us "If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man and able also to bridle the whole body."
I can do better.
My thoughts precede my words.
Can I actually choose my thoughts?
And 'bridle my words'?
Choose what to think?
Direct and redirect not only thought but action too?
Can I learn to organize elements? Can I learn the physical AND spiritual processes whereby with faith, my actions produce miracles and I become as my Father in Heaven?
Today marks another start of another year.
