Jesus Christ informed the disciples that He wu going to take
His departure from them, and declared that they could not
follow Him. He wanted them to continue loving one another,
thereby proving to all who observed their devotion that they
were His disciples. Motivated by love for his Lord, Peter
impulsively and hastily declared that regardless of the
inability of others to follow Him, he was ready to accompany
Him^nd to die in the process if that be necessary. Knowing full
weft that Peter did not have the spiritual stamina to sub
stantiate his avowal, Christ bluntly told him that he would
deny Him three times before the cock crowed in the morning.
On three different occasions during the trials of the Lord
Jesus, Peter denied that he was a disciple of the Saviour,
whereupon the cock crew in fulfillment of the prediction of
Christ. Any person who gets out of communion with the Lord,
out of fellowship with Christians, and consorts with evil
companions, always does the wrong thing.
After he had sinned grievously in denying his Lord, Peter
had shed bitter tears over his sin, and had made full and frank
confession of it, whereupon he had received forgiveness and
had been restored to sweet fellowship with Christ, but he was
in need of restoration to service also.
Following the delightful breakfast which Christ had
provided and prepared for the disciples, Christ again turned
His attention to Peter and dealt with him. To Peter Christ put
the pointed question: "Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me
more than these?" By that question Christ was asking, "Do
you love me deeply and devotedly?" Peter's response was
equivalent to saying, "I have an affection for thee," or "I am a
friend of yours." Then Christ repeated His question, using the
stronger word for "love," and Peter replied using the weaker
word for "love." The third time Christ asked the question He
used Peter's word for "love." Crying out with anguish, Peter
said: "Lord, thou knowest all things, thou knowest that I love
thee." He meant that he had a genuine affection for Christ.

Spend with caution is the watchword for today's consumers.
George Buchanan, an English poet cautioned, "a fool and his
money are soon parted". Few of us can drift with impulsive
spending and excessive credit without drowning in unpaid bills
and loss of assets.
How to stay afloat, build and maintain financial security is
the consumer's greatest concern today. This requires making
the right choices when using money by: (1) getting control of
self and his-her thinking (2) getting control of his-her dollars
(3) Don't kid yourself into believing that you are helpless and
that it is the outside factors that control your money. YOU
make the choices for its use.
The following practices enable you to control your dollars !
1. Control starts with planning. Write out a plan for what you
want to do with your money over a year or a month. Identify
how much is to be saved, spent, and shared. Buy the most
important items first and keep spending within income limits.
Keep accurate records of your spending. Remember, it's the
bits of spending here and there that can play havoc with your
budget and put you out of control.
2. Curb costs by changing life style and reducing buying of the

Cut down on purchase of those goods and services which are
