Yesterday I wrote about forgetting to bring a paddle along for a canoe trip. I had to go back to the house and get the paddle before I could go anywhere on the water.
Today I’ll tell you a little more about my forgetfulness on this trip. I had been out on the water for a couple of minutes when it struck me that something was not quite right. Then it dawned on me that I had neglected to put on my life jacket. I had brought it with me, but it wasn’t going to do me any good lying on the bottom of the canoe. Putting on my life jacket made me feel a whole lot safer.
When Peter faltered in his attempt to walk on the water, he had something much better than a life jacket. He had the hand of Jesus reaching down to save him. (Matthew 14:25-31).
Be safe out there!
“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”—Acts 4:12.
