I don't know about y'all , but I know that my dad does everything within his power to take care of me and keep me safe. He cautions me about things that could happen if I do certain things and he is always giving me wisdom on how I should do things if I want to do it the right way.
Well, just like our dad on earth, our Heavenly Father wants to take care of us. He cautions us when we are falling away and He is more than happy to accept us back with open arms when we don't make the best decisions.
I know that personally, when I really need to talk to someone there is only 2 or 3 people that I can go to and share my feelings with. Even when I go to those people I still need to talk it out some more.

What are you supposed to do when you just don't match up?
Jesus and Peter have a really awkward conversation over a breakfast of bread and broiled fish. Jesus asks Peter if he loves him three times, and Peter tells him three times that he does. The reason why this conversation is awkward isn't because of how many times Jesus asks, but rather the love that Jesus talks about initially isn't the love that Peter has to give Jesus. The two loves are:
So, to give perspective to the conversation:
