After experiencing this miracle, the disciples recognized the giver of the gift was greater than the gift itself. What they had worked so hard for, Jesus did in an instant. But the beauty was that Peter recognized a miracle had taken place and who Jesus was in that moment. The closer we get to Jesus, the more we realize our flaws and the areas where we need help. On the other hand, sometimes we focus more on the miracle than on the miracle worker. They recognized that the benefit would be to stick with Jesus rather than enjoy this temporary miracle. Let’s not overlook the eternal gift from God for a temporary solution here on earth.'
