Mustard Seeds. Lots of ’em

I spent yesterday at my very favorite Wednesday destination.  Equip.  Although I always seem to be tired during class, I enjoy it oh so much 🙂  After lunch, and some crazy good desserts, we came around to one of my favorite classes; literature.

In the recent weeks of literature, our homework has been to read passages of the Bible, answer questions, and then discuss what we read in class.  We were working through Mathew when one of my classmates brought up the phrase, “Faith like a mountain of mustard seeds.”  (I don’t remember the rest of the conversation from that point.  I was mentally stopped in my tracks.)

WOA!   Right?!  I had never imagined it.  A mountain of mustard seeds is a LOT of faith!  And oh how I wish I had so much faith!  Yes I know it’s possible, that I do have faith for, I’m just blown away by the scale of this.  Matthew 17:20 “He said to them, ‘Because of your little faith.  For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, move from here to there, and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you’.”  A mustard seed is a tiny little thing.  It’s not large and impressive.  Now picture a whole mountain of mustard seeds!  That’s impressive!

So this is just me reflecting on the more important things in life.  Feel free to reflect with me, and if you want to have faith like a mountain of mustard seeds, join me, the journey starts now.
