A Prayer Asking God for His Perspective | Your Daily Prayer

“Jesus turned to Peter and said…  ‘You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s.’” - Matthew 16:23 Before Jesus said this, he stated plainly that he would suffer many things and then be killed. Peter wouldn’t stand for this, so he pulled Jesus aside and rebuked him. Peter had good intentions. He was attempting to protect Jesus, his Rabbi and friend, from pain and suffering. But Peter’s intentions were misguided. What seemed right and good to Peter wasn’t actually the truest right or the best good.
