Have You Gotten Out the Boat ,Yet?

In Matthew's gospel, chapter 14, Apostle Peter teaches us a valuable life lesson. He teaches us that it is possible to do the impossible. When this particular passage is preached, preachers often teach us about Peter's failure (he began to sink - Matthew 14:30). However, they often fail to tell us about Peter's success (he walked on the water - Matthew 14:30) .

If we only focus on Peter's failure (he began to sink), we would never be motivated to move from where we are to where we want to be. It is only when we focus on Peter's success will we move from ambition to action. So, I ask

Are you going to get out of the boat and venture into the unknown - do something that you have never done before?


Are you going to stay in the boat - become a lifetime rider and play it safe?
