Poor Peter! In today’s Gospel, Peter can’t seem to say the right thing. He was praised for calling Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God. Then later when Jesus shared with His disciples that He will go to Jerusalem, suffer, and be killed, Peter responded, “No such thing will ever happen to you.” Jesus told Peter, “Get behind me, Satan.” He also said, “You are thinking as human beings think and not as God does.”
As we walk through life each day, it might be good to check out thoughts. When all is going well, what are our thoughts? When nothing seems to be going right, then what are our thoughts?
Our prayer today might be a simple one: “Jesus, teach me to think as you think.”
