Fix Your Eyes on Jesus
Peter was the only disciple who asked to walk out onto the water with Jesus. Yet, when he failed to keep his eyes on the Lord and sank, Jesus said, “Peter, your faith isn’t big enough if you don’t trust Me” (Matthew 14:31). If you were Peter, you might have replied, “But Lord, John didn’t come. Neither did Andrew, James, Philip or the others. I was the only one. My faith is bigger than theirs. Shouldn’t that make up for my moment of distraction?” But Jesus never weighs our faith against anyone else’s. Instead, He watches us closely and constantly to see if we will keep Jesus the center of our focus. Help your child turn their eyes upon Jesus and look into His wonderful face, in the light of His glory and grace.
