Voice of the Lord

Kefa said to Yeshua, "It's good that we're here, Lord. I'll put up three shelters if you want—one for you, one for Moshe and one for Eliyahu" (Matthew 17:4).

Jewish Date



It's encouraging to see that even Kefa (Peter) could come up with a bad idea. After all, who could blame him for wanting to help? There he was, standing before Moshe (Moses), Eliyahu (Elijah) and the glorified Messiah. I certainly would have been at a loss for something interesting to say, wouldn't you? What could any earthly person say in conversation with these three men? Perhaps I would have asked Moshe where his body was secretly buried. Or Eliyahu, "Why did you panic after the Mount Carmel victory?" I would have sounded more foolish than Kefa.

Kefa's suggestion was a terrible idea because these men were in the heavenly realm; they needed shelters about as much as a fish needs a raincoat.

God's advice to Kefa, after the dust of his mistake cleared, coincides with advice he gave earlier to mankind in general, "Even a fool, if he stays silent, is thought wise" (Proverbs 17:28). To Kefa, he said, "This is my Son, whom I love....Listen to him!" (Matthew 17:4) Sometimes, the last thing needed is for us to say something.

Thank God for Kefa. He walked on water; yes, but he also had moments of glorious fallibility. There is hope for us all!


...let go of perfectionism and allow the human errors of the godly ones in Scripture encourage me.
