Have just a little faith.

20He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." (Matthew 17:20)

The parable of the mustard seed shows us that God does not have impossible expectations of us. We do not have to be perfect. We do not need to have alot of faith. God can work within us even if we have only the tiniest amount of faith. We can always trust that God will come to us where ever we are, and no matter how little faith we may have.
Jesus was trying to tell His friends that we do not have to understand everything when we have faith in God. He will take the little bit that we understand and help us to grow. The more we learn about God and how much he loves us, the more we grow, like the mustard seed. We change and become something more beautiful. However, we do not change of our own efforts. We change because of the love God has for us. As we change, our faith grows. As our faith grows, we change.
Through God's help we become the best we can be.

Peace and love,


"Then Jesus said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me". (Luke 9:23)
