“Sorry, I Can’t Stay Long …”
Matthew 17: 4: “And Peter answered and said to Jesus, ‘Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, I will make three tabernacles here, one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.’” Put yourself in the place of Moses and Elijah. Would you say, “Wow, what a nice gesture, Peter, building us a tent to stay in here on earth when we already have a mansion in Heaven! We’re tired of it there!” Don’t think so. Sometimes we’re so focused on what’s good for us, we make very presumptuous demands on others.
