"Love First, Last, & Always"
In the Gospel this past Sunday, Jesus tells us that if we have faith, even the size of a mustard seed, that it will be enough in God’s eyes. Now a mustard seed is a very small seed, but as it turns out, the amount of faith we have doesn’t matter, because God is the one doing the “heavy lifting”. Even if you feel your faith is small, God can (and will!) accomplish great things through you.
But don’t let this fool you. It is still important for us to continue to strengthen our faith, through prayer, participation in the sacraments, reading God’s word, and humble service. A strong faith helps us handle adversity in our lives and it is the greatest gift we can pass on to our children.
Whatever faith you offer God will be enough. It is not about how much faith we have, but what we are doing with the faith He has given us. Exercise the faith of a mustard seed in your daily life, and God will truly work in extraordinary ways.
