  Jesus replied, “And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition? Matthew 15:3  We are pretty used to using loopholes to lower our tax bill. It is almost like a game. How many ways can you find to get out of paying taxes. Yet we all know that the taxes...

“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Matthew 14:28-29  I can only imagine how much Jesus wanted to step out on the water and marvel at what Jesus could do. I think he wanted to see the...

 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” Matthew 14:28 Why is Peter the only one who walked on the water? Because he is the only one who stepped out of the  boat. How many of the other disciples thought in the morning...
