Aim Small, Miss Small

Matthew 5:48 (NASB) 
“Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

In the movie, “The Patriot,” farmer Benjamin Martin (Mel Gibson) tells his sons to “aim small, miss small.”  Narrow your focus. Concentrate – not on the target, but on the bullseye.  

Don Shula, coach of the NFL, undefeated  Miami Dolphins, led his team to win every game in the 1972, said, “If you want don’t seek perfection, you can never reach excellence.”

The Apostle Paul said,  (Philippians 3:14)I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

Getting close doesn’t even count in horseshoes if what’s needed is a ringer.

Aim precisely and you may not only hit the target, but you may actually hit the bullseye.
