Matthew 16:22-23. Human Response 28 Jun 2023

Mat 16:22 Then, taking him aside,
Peter started to rebuke him.
'Heaven preserve you, Lord,' he said,
'this must not happen to you.'
Mat 16:23 But he turned and said to Peter,
'Get behind me, Satan!
You are an obstacle in my path,
because you are thinking not as God thinks
but as human beings do.'

Jesus, where am I proposing unsolicited 'quick fixes' for others?
