While everyone was marveling at everything he was doing, Jesus said to his disciples, "Listen to me and remember what I say. The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of his enemies." But they didn't know what he meant. Its significance was hidden from them, so they couldn't understand it, and they were afraid to ask him about it.
Father, the failure of those that I love and trust hurts so badly. Please don't let their failure keep me from the joy you have given me in Christian fellowship and the hope I have in you. Please, dear Father, help me not to be a failure and a disappointment to others. Also, please help me remember that many of Jesus' greatest servants failed at one time or another and that you redeemed and powerfully used them to reach others with your power and grace. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
