John 21: 20-22

Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them.  (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is going to betray you?”)  When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?”

Isn’t this so human.  “Follow Me”, Jesus said, and Peter turned and said but “What about him?”  We are called to follow Christ, yet we are constantly watching our brothers and sisters to see how they are doing.  We are responsible for our walk with God, our eyes should be on Him, our obedience to Him.  What He does with or for, others may be our concern in prayer, but it should not affect our walk with Christ.  Our walk is OUR walk.  As He chooses for us, He provides for us.  We are His testimony, His ambassadors.
