Who Cares What They Say?

Social Media...
Reality Television...
He say...
She say...
They say...

Wait!  What did they say?




These days

It seems that we as a society have become increasingly concerned with what they have to say

and it seems as if they always have something to say

But who are they anyway?
And why does it even matter what they say?


Last week as I was reading Matthew 16
I was reminded that they have always had a lot to say

Jesus asked His disciples...

Who do they say that I am?

and their answers
(eliciting a full list of wrong multiple choice options)

led to another question

and the true lesson
that came through in Peter's response

because although Peter

knew
had heard
was aware

of what they

said about Jesus...
thought about Jesus...

he had been with Jesus long enough to form his own opinion
and come to the conclusion that... Jesus is God!

So today I am reminded
to let go of the they say mentality

because at the end of the day
it won't even matter what they say

It will be all about what HE says!
