faith like a mustard seed

Imagine The Seed

Imagine The Seed

Imagine holding one of those seeds in your hand while you stand at the base of a fully grown tree strong enough to have nests built into its branches.

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.
