And the apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.” The Lord replied, “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.”
So many times we want answers…but Jesus seldom gives them. Instead He gives parables and sayings that disrupt the usual patterns of our thinking. The important thing is to live the question…so that God can transform you in the process. Answers alone bypass the importance of the journey and the discoveries God wants to reveal to each of us. Jesus seems to be saying to stop looking for answers…and simply believe in God’s providence. Let go of your need to be in control…your need to be the center of the universe. You just may be surprised at the amazing and seemingly impossible transformations that await you!
