Wait! What did they say?
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
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!
