The trial and Peter's denial.
Many are quick to criticize Peter for deny Jesus, after all, he spent 3 1/2 years with Jesus. He said he was willing to die with Him. Yet when the time came, he folded like a house of cards. Yet was Peter any different than we are? Sure he spent 3 1/2 years with Jesus and was part of the inner circle. But we have the Holy Spirit and the Bible to get to know Jesus. How many of us have denied knowing Jesus. Maybe we haven't said it but can our silence be just as bad? I'm a peacemaker I don't want to make waves so too often I probably stay silent when I shouldn't. Thankfully God is a God of second (and third) chances.
