We all have expectations of ourselves. These expectations are crucial if we are to become the people God intends. We have to set goals, establish our aims and move toward them. Peter wanted and expected to be a loyal follower, someone whose commitment was real and strong. He could not imagine a situation in which he’d stop following Jesus, let alone a moment when he abandoned him.
We need high expectations of ourselves if we are to achieve great things, but the higher our hopes for ourselves, the harder it is when we fail.
What expectations do you have for yourself as a person?
How about as a disciple?
