“And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.” – Matthew 16:18
Have you ever noticed that people tend to become what they are told they are? Peter was anything but a “rock” when Jesus spoke his true name into his life. If you want rotten, stinking, filthy, lazy, good-for-nothin’ kids, just call them that. Don’t worry. Even if they’re not, if you call them that a few times, they’ll start becoming that.
