  1. It is always interesting for me to hear stories of you when I was young. Firstly, I do want to congratulate you on doing so well at your job. You’ve always been a hard worker that I have seen, but also congratulations on recognizing how you hurt others even, so long ago. I easily catch myself in similar positions at work; it is so easy to tear someone down when they aren’t present, but it is incredibly important to never engage in it. I’m still learning this lesson every day.

  2. You know what gets me about this passage of Scripture? In Luke 22:31 Jesus tells Peter what is going to happen; ‘Satan has asked to sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you, that your faith will not fail, and after you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.’
    Yes I too have denied others with my words, and shamefully even the Lord with my actions or no-actions. But here the Lord allows us to know He knows before we blow it, also he limits the enemy’s access to us, prays for us and gives us hope beyond the failure.
    I agree with you that the look from our Lord was not condemnation but the Truth in Love reminding us; our failures are not fatal and He has already provided a useful purpose for us to help our brothers. Wow what kind of love this Jesus has for us!
