Everybody makes mistakes, but that doesn’t have to keep you from doing something great for God.
Jesus appeared to his disciples a few times after he died on the cross just to make sure they knew that he was alive. One day, the disciples were fishing but they weren’t catching anything. A voice from shore yelled out to them telling them to throw their nets to the other side of the boat. When they did, they caught more fish than their nets could hold. Peter realized that it was Jesus yelling out to them so he swam to shore as fast as he could. Jesus was cooking breakfast for them! Peter had been feeling really bad that he had denied knowing Jesus right before Jesus went to the cross. Jesus knew that Peter was feeling bad so he decided to ask him some questions. Jesus asked Peter, “Peter do you love me?” Peter said, “Yes!” Then Jesus told him to feed his sheep. Jesus wasn’t talking about actual sheep, he was talking about the people that Peter needed to teach about Jesus. Jesus did this to show Peter that he loved him and that he forgave him for his mistakes. And he reminded Peter of his mission which was to teach others about Jesus. Jesus will give us second chances when we make mistakes, too.
