Unwrap the Gift

I tell you solemnly, if your faith were the size of a mustard seed you could say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it would move; nothing would be impossible for you.

Jesus explains to the disciples why they were unable to cast out a demon. Their small faith in God limited their ministry.

The first reading has Moses giving adherence to the law as the way to loving God. The Gospel has Jesus showing the new way to love God. Unshakeable faith in him.

Law is an outside in process. Faith is an inside out process and so by far the superior way. It wasn't until I claimed and named faith in Jesus that things started to change in my life. What a precious gift my faith in Jesus is.

Thank you Jesus for the gift of faith you have given me. I unwrap it again today and marvel at its beauty and power to change my life.
Little Flower, please pray for me.
