When Peter cut off the ear of one of the crowd who had come to arrest Jesus, Jesus reattached the ear (Luke22:51), indicating that His kingdom was about healing, not hurting. Time after time, Jesus used the disciples’ mistakes to show a better way.

What Jesus did for His disciples, He also does for us. And what he does for us, we can do for others. Instead of magnifying every mistake, we can turn them into beautiful acts of forgiveness, healing and redemption.

Jesus longs to turn our mistakes into amazing examples of His grace.
