John 21:21-22 ” When Peter saw him, he asked, ‘Lord, what about him?’ Jesus answered, ‘If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow Me.’ “

Jesus’ rebuke to Peter could easily apply to any of us today. “What is it to you what I do or don’t do in another person’s life? You must follow Me.” But we love running interference for others and getting in God’s way…thinking we know more than Him. But that’s way above our mental capacity and not at all something we’re even responsible for. “You must follow Me.” In other words, Jesus is their Savior, not you…and your only duty & obligation is to maintain an abiding fellowship in belief, trust, and obedience in Jesus…following His leadership, and focusing on your fidelity to His plan & purpose in your life, not others.
