“Now Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it to his brothers. . .” (Genesis 37:5)
COMMENT: Well folks, I am sorry if I have misled you; from the Lead Scripture you probably thought that I was going to discuss Joseph and his dreams. However, I just used that verse as a lead-in to tell you about an interesting and perplexing dream I had the other night.
All I remember was the following phrase: “What three things did Peter say?” My first thought was: “Peter was so talkative; his mouth was always open and that often led to his chagrin.(John 13:37) How can I pick out three statements out of all of that verbiage?”. Then the thought came to me . . . .”What were the three most important things that Peter said?” Now you may disagree with me, but here is my list in the order of importance. #1 “And Simon Peter answered and said, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (Matthew 16:16) #2 – And he (Peter) said to Him (Jesus) “Lord You know all things; You know that I love You.” (John 21:17b) #3 – “Then Peter came to Him and said, ‘Lord how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?’ Jesus said to him, ‘I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.’ “(Matthew 18:21,22)
Please let me know if your TOP THREE are different from mine.
SCRIPTURE STUDY: Matthew 6:12, Ephesians 5:23 and 1 John 4:19
WISE SAYING: PETER SAID SOME THINGS THAT CAUSED HIM PAIN, BUT IN THE END IT ALL WAS GAIN. (gene mcguire)
