    It is easy to get distracted by everyday events. We are reminded of going back to the source of our strength which is our Lord Jesus. In a glimpse of an eye, God can change anything.

    BSP says above, "the different positions in heaven were not his to give." It was not the positions in heaven that were at stake. This is why Jesus told them, "Ye know not what ye ask..." It was the positions on the crosses on either side of the crucified Jesus that was "given to them for whom it is prepared." James and John were unwittingly asking to be crucified with Jesus "in His glory".
