  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 14:22-33)
Today’s gospel we Jesus walk over the sea. This dramatic event on the Sea of Galilee revealed Peter's nature more completely than others. Here we see Peter's impulsivity – his propensity to act without thinking of what he was doing. He often failed and came to grief as a result of his impulsiveness. In contrast, Jesus constantly bade his disciples to see how hard it was to go behind him before they set out on the way he taught them. A huge deal of failure in the Christian life is due to drama on impulse and emotional fervor without counting the price. Peter, luckily in the moment of his failure clutched at Jesus and detained him firmly. Every time Peter fell, he rose again. His failures only made him love the Lord more extremely and trust him more intently. The Lord keeps watch over us at all times, and particularly in our moments of temptation and complexity. Do you rely on the Lord for his power and help? Jesus assures us that we have no requirement of fear if we trust in Him and in his immense love for us. When calamities or trials intimidate to overwhelm us, how do we respond? With faith and hope in God's love, be concerned and presence with us?
