Mustard and Mountains

When you talk about having faith, you will often bring up the concept of having faith as small as a mustard seed. Mustard seeds are some of the smallest seeds, and if we could muster even a small amount of faith we could move mountains. Figurative or not; move mountains??? I began to think about this mustard seed thing. I mean, should I be embarrassed that I cannot move mountains? All I need is a little bit of faith for crying out loud. Can I not even muster enough faith to equal one of the smallest seeds? What is God's exchange ratio on faith required to size of an actual mustard seed?

I began to realize something though. ALL seeds need to be cared for. All seeds need to be planted and taken care of...maintained...nourished...watered...fed.

I am not sure that faith as small as a mustard seed means just a little faith here and there will give you the ability to just move mountains. That faith, which begins as small as a mustard seed, if fed, nourished, and watered well has the potential to grow into something phenomenal. Perhaps eventually, if taken good care of, that faith can one day move a mountain.
