In their own words: Day 10

Matt 26.33

Peter said to Jesus, ‘Though all become deserters because of you, I will never desert you.’

This story is also set at the Last Supper. Jesus has warned his followers that he will be arrested and killed, and that they will all leave him, but Peter still can’t take it in. He thinks of himself as loyal and brave and tough – a good friend. He cannot imagine that he will ever desert Jesus. It would threaten his self-image too much even to consider it.

·         What three words would you use to describe your character? Why do you think you are like that? Have you ever done something which has made you re-evaluate your image of yourself, for better or worse?
