The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
A discriminating diner might taste a chef’s dish and exclaim, “Perfection!” An art critic might stare at a famous painting for hours and conclude, “It’s perfect!” Or a young bride-to-be might stare at her engagement ring and whisper, “Oh, it’s perfect!”
Really? Are meals, paintings, and diamonds actually perfect? Not really, but we fully understand what “perfection” means in those situations. Perfection is in the eye of the beholder. So is anything in this world actually perfect? The Bible says one thing is: “The law of the Lord.” And what does that mean? It means that God’s words to man, found in Scripture, are complete, lacking for nothing; they cannot be improved upon. There is nothing missing, nothing God forgot to include that we need for faith and practice in the Christian life. Paul wrote that Scripture is sufficient for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). If it weren’t, it wouldn’t be perfect.
God’s Word should be our first stop and the last word on anything about which it speaks. A “perfect” way to begin every day is with the prayerful consideration of God’s perfect Word.
