I know that there are many individuals who, like me, grew up in Sunday school hearing and envisioning Peter the disciple who walked on the water, and then, the following week at the city pool, we would try and mimic the Bible lesson as we took a step on the water. No matter how many times we sunk, we would keep trying again and again with no avail. There’s definitely something to be said about the raw undefiled faith of children.   

Peter and the other disciples in Matthew 14:24-33 were in the small boat going to the other side of the Sea of Galilee. They had just experienced Jesus feeding the multitude but, like so many of us, the disciples still didn’t have a grasp on who Jesus really was. They were still on their journey of getting to know who Jesus was.
