Exodus 1-3, Matthew 5:27-48
The word perfect used here is ‘teleios’ in Greek which is more widely used to refer to maturity and wholeness. So God is not asking us to be flawless, as he knows that’s a standard that only Jesus could reach. He is instead asking us to be mature in faith. Hope that helps x
My interpretation is That we all must strive unto perfection… the goal is perfection, however, God understands that we are flesh and that is why we can find mercy when we fall short of His glory.
