It can happen that we lose interest in people
And even become blind to their strengths when we discover their limitations.
During His Passion Jesus discovered the limitations of Peter.
Yet He didn’t write him off.
He continued to believe in him and in time he came good.
Like Peter, we are weak human beings who are inconstant in our beliefs.
We need someone who understands our weaknesses,
Who realises that it may take time for us to overcome them
And who doesn’t write us off because we don’t produce the goods at once.
