Faith in God is a gift for which we pray. Jesus uses the image of the tiny mustard seed to illustrate how very little faith is needed to accomplish extraordinary feats. It enables us to move mountains. As unprofitable servants, we do not earn it; we have no right to claim it as our own. We are the ones from whom faithful service will be expected. We will be sent to plough the fields and tend the sheep. We will be called to serve at table, fulfilling our duties faithfully and doing what is required as a disciple. The faith that is ours has been mediated to us through the community. We have heard about God and about Jesus from others, from our parents and families, from our teachers and those who preach, from those with whom we work and play. Faith comes from God and we should strive to live out this faith each day with our family, friends and the people around us.
