What Is That To You?

Vance Havner 90x115by Vance Havner

When Peter asked our Lord, concerning John, “Lord, and what shall this man do?” (John 21:21), the reply was, “If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou me” (v. 22). Our Lord was never sidetracked by the secondary. Whether questioned about tribute to Caesar, dividing an inheritance, or why a Jew should ask a drink of water from a Samaritan, He always stuck to the main issue. We must resist the intrusion of the irrelevant. “…what is that to thee? Follow thou me.”
