“For the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes each one he accepts as his child.”
Have you ever met someone whom you genuinely wanted to impress? You really wanted to say just the right thing, but you ended up blurting out something so absurd and foolish that you couldn’t believe you actually said it.
I think that’s how Peter felt when He saw Jesus’s transfiguration on the mountaintop. He wanted to say something profound, something insightful. But instead he said, “Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah” (Matthew 17:4 NKJV).
