Is it really the amount of faith we have or what we put our faith in that makes the difference? People put their faith in lots of things every day. We place our faith in how much money we have in the bank. We place our faith in how our interpersonal relationships are going. We place our faith in vehicles to get us from point A to point B each day. There’s nothing wrong with putting faith in these things, but sometimes we fail to examine where we are placing our faith. Peter was challenged to examine where he put his faith. In that moment, he chose to place his faith in Jesus. Because he did, it allowed him to do the impossible: to walk on water. We may not see large-scale miracles occur often, but in a little way every day, we can see how our faith in Jesus can protect us. Like the disciples, we can hear Jesus say, “Be encouraged! It’s me. Don’t be afraid.”
Since the Arizona thermometers were over 110 degrees all week, our children need a little respite from the heat! Our Sunday school lesson offers up ice boat races, ocean slime, gummy bear popsicles, and water games.
