Did Peter pretend not to know Jesus outside Ciaphus’ house, thinking he needed more time to help Jesus escape from His captors? (Luke 22:60).
Later, Jesus totally forgives him and gives Peter a ministry, “Feed My sheep,” John 21:17
*Do we hide what we’re doing or what we truly believe because we want to hold our cards close to the vest and change the outcome? We’ll wait till the other person’s cards are on the table, then we’ll reveal what we think or feel, like when it’s safe.
Dear Lord God, nothing’s hidden from You. What do we care what others think? We want You to be pleased.
