You chose the perfect scripture. The body of the devotion clearly stated your message without being preachy. The prayer was heartfelt and one I really needed to pray right now. Great job!

A beautiful devotional. Great job!

I also wanted to write about a conversation Jesus had with someone in the Bible but it just didn't work out well on paper. You've done a superb job of expressing the importance of personal contact and caring in reaching out to others. You did what I wasn't able to do. Well done.

Good devotional with a message for us all. Face to face exchanges just tend to be much more searching, and I can only imagine the eye contact in this particular conversation with Jesus. It could have made Peter crawl away like a worm, but instead, made him a devoted lifetime follower and leader.

Well done! You have a good mix of Scripture, examples from life, and lessons for your readers.
This is one of my favorite stories from Scripture. I love how Jesus called Peter back to him even after he did such a despicable thing as rejecting him. I think you covered the topic very well with this message.

One little note: I think the (John 21:15-17 NIV) reference should come after the quoted verses instead of before it. At least, that's how I'm supposed to do it on all my school papers.

Blessings! :)

Well written and powerful. Volumes could be written about these two characters. Shalom :)
