Mustard Seed

Most of us think that we must have a fully developed faith before we are called to boldly act in Christ.  This is a fallacy, as Jesus points out in today’s gospel passage from Matthew.

Amen, I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed,
you will say to this mountain,
‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move.
Nothing will be impossible for you.”

If nothing is impossible it means that everything is possible!  The mustard seed, which is tiny, grows into a large bush. Even our limited, sometimes tiny faith is enough to change the lives and hearts of those around us.

Have faith, my sisters and brothers, and our God will make wonders happen through you!
