A Thought for Today: “Talk is Cheap”
When one talks, it is easy to be bold.
We might say I am going to do this; I am going to do that.
However, we really do not know what we will do until we are in a certain situation.
Please read the following verses
Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial
27 “You will all fall away,” Jesus told them, “for it is written:
“‘I will strike the shepherd,
and the sheep will be scattered.’
28 But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.”
29 Peter declared, “Even if all fall away, I will not.”
30 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “today—yes, tonight—before the rooster crows twice[b] you yourself will disown me three times.”
31 But Peter insisted emphatically, “Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you.” And all the others said the same.
Do you see what I mean about talk being cheap?
Peter is bold when he is talking, not so much when the rubber meets the road.
Before we jump on Peter, let us examine our own lives and count the times when we have left Jesus down.
Are you feeling guilty yet?
Oh wait, as believers, we do not have to count those ways and times.
Our miserable times of failures have been taken away as far as the east is from the west.
What a Wonderful Lord and Savior we serve.
Allow Him to make the needed changes in us for His Wonderful Honor and Glory.
