Jan. 19- Ch. 19

The thing I like about Peter is the writers of the Gospels let us in on his personality more than any other disciple.  I think that is why I can identify with so many of his reactions to things– both good and bad.  In this chapter  Peter asks a question that most of us have asked or at least thought– What’s in it for me?  It is a selfish question, but we all ask it.  And notice Jesus doesn’t rebuke him for asking.   He gives him a straight answer, which may in fact be harder to take than a rebuke– Many who are last will be first, and many who are first will be last.
