The twelve disciples. Perhaps because we feel we know them well,
we can sometimes overlook the obvious fact that they were just
twelve normal people like us. Yes, they saw and heard some amazing
things, but like us they also made mistakes sometimes, spoke without
thinking on occasion, and took a while to learn the lessons Jesus
was teaching them. As we revisit incidents in the lives of these
twelve men, maybe we'll learn more about ourselves and become better
equipped to be modern-day disciples of the same unchanging Lord Jesus.
