prayer diary Saturday 10 May 2014

When many of his disciples heard it, they said, ‘This teaching is difficult; who can accept it? … So Jesus asked the twelve, ‘Do you also wish to go away?’Simon Peter answered him, ‘Lord, to whom can we go? You have the words of eternal life. 
John 6. 60, 67-68

Reflection
Faced with disciples leaving because they found his teaching hard, Jesus did not react by trying in any way to soften it. He held his ground and asked others if they also wanted to leave. Because better hard teachings that are true that lead to heaven than an easy ones that are false and end in eternal misery.
