Me, Myself and the ‘Other Guy 
Sandra Fischer

“Lord, what about him?” (John 21:21b NIV)

Ever find yourself concerned about what someone else has or is getting in life compared with you? You may be teetering on the sin of covetousness. Many of us are familiar with the “greener grass” temptation to view the “other side of the fence”, comparing our lives with others. 

Peter did it. In John chapter 21, Christ restores Peter three times by appointing him to care for the “sheep”, His followers. Jesus indicates the kind of death Peter would experience, ending with an emphatic, “Follow me!” Instead of focusing on Jesus’ command, Peter turns to look at John and asks, “Lord, what about him?” He’s concerned with what Jesus had in mind for the “other guy.” Jesus said, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me” (John 21:22 NIV).

God has a plan and purpose for each of us—to focus on Him, to follow where He leads us and to not be distracted. When we begin to wonder about the “other guy” and what God has in mind for him or her, we need to heed the voice of Jesus saying, “What is that to you? You must follow me.” From Peter’s example we can see he did refocus and follow Jesus. He trusted his life and death to Christ, faithfully serving and glorifying Him. We can do no less. Our Shepherd calls each of us as individuals. “. . .he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out” (John 10:3b NIV.) Let’s focus on our own path, following Him.

“Father, help me keep my eyes on You and Your path for me.”
