Increase Our Faith

The natural attitude of human beings is that we know the answer to all situations, and that answer will advance our desires and intentions. We are impatient and insistent for our answers to be accepted by others and especially by God. We set ourselves up as judge over God. In the Gospel, we are reminded that our task is to do all that we are charged with. All we need is faith the size of a mustard seed. God will do all the real work. What holds us back? It may be we lack confidence in our own power. Or maybe it is that we insist on doing the job alone. Jesus calls us to faith in who we are: God’s servants empowered to make a difference in the world because God makes a difference in us.
