God knows when He sees potential…and Jesus saw potential in Peter! He saw something in this fisherman that very few other people could see. But He did not look at Peter in the flesh, He saw what he could become in spirit! Because if Jesus only looked at the outer person, He would have only seen a dirty, sweaty, smelly man who works with fish the whole day. A man who leaves the shore early in the morning to go and sit in his boat until late afternoon, hoping to catch something.
