We can examine the story of Peter walking on the water to Christ and learn more than we usually do in a cursory look at the story. Peter did actually get out of the boat, none of the others did. Fear, worry, doubt, and human reasoning are enemies of faith that can overwhelm us if we let them. We must keep our focus on God and reach for Him regardless of the size of the storm in the world around us.
