The Size of Faith

And He said unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?     Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.          Matthew 8:26 ERV

What size is faith?

Is it small like the disciples

who cried out in the storm drenched boat

thinking they would die,

“LORD are you trying to kill us?

Save us from this storm.”

Or is it medium size like Jonah

who pleaded with men

“Throw me overboard!” to calm the sea

Jonah who had to be taken under

drowned at the foot of Mt Carmel

washed up on the shore to save Ninevah

Or is it large like Jesus

who became man

spoke of a kingdom that was other of this world

obedient to the end

cried out in a loud voice

“Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.”
