When Jesus commanded us to be perfect as our Father in heaven, we learned something important. We can reach perfection. In fact, how can we not be perfect when we were created by God, who is perfect? But what is perfection? How loving do you have to be? How smart, how spiritual? If you get fifty people in a room, you will have fifty versions of what is considered perfection. Since there is no universal definition of perfection, maybe perfection is just where you are at. We just have to recognize it. Everything in this world is an appearance. But behind all appearances is God, is perfection. As we strive to do things "better" (be more loving, etc), we must also recognize the perfection of where we are at. Therein lies the paradox.
