I love the disciples. At times, they remind me of me, especially when Jesus gets done teaching, and they are still lost, and He has to explain it to them. I think they got it right near the end though.
I was reading today in Matthew 26, the last supper, and noticed something. Jesus tells the twelve that one of them will betray him, and instead of pointing fingers at who they thought may be the weakest of them, they all asked, “Who, me?”
Wow, if I could only get that one right in my life, and teach it to my kids.
God, when things go wrong, help me to see my own weakness, and the fault in me, and not to point my finger and judge other first.
Here is the text:
“When evening had come, He sat down with the twelve. Now as they were eating, He said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, one of you will betray Me.’ And they were exceedingly sorrowful, and each of them began to say to Him, ‘Lord, is it I?’”
