Faith is a gift from God.
Do you ever wish you had more faith? I have good news for you. Your faith is beautiful. It is a gift from God. You don’t need more faith. What? That’s what Jesus said.

The apostles came up and said to the Master, “Give us more faith.” But the Master said, “You don’t need more faith. There is no ‘more’ or ‘less’ in faith. If you have a bare kernel of faith, say the size of a poppy seed, you could say to this sycamore tree, ‘Go jump in the lake,’ and it would do it. (Luke 17:5-6, MSG)
Faith is a gift from God.
There’s no ‘more’ or ‘less’ in faith.
Faith is faith.

What we need to do is to use our faith.
Believe, pray, trust.
Put it in practice.

What we need to do is to take care of our faith.
Nourish, water, tend.
Grow in grace.
What we need to do is to live out our faith.
Share, embrace, celebrate.
Live in grace. 
Gracious God,
Thank you for the gift of faith!
Thank you that you’ve prepared everything for us.
Show us how to embrace faith for real.
Enable us to believe without hesitation.
Help us to take care of our faith.
Empower us to practice our faith
and live it it out loud.
In Jesus’ name,
Q4U: How do you grow in your faith?
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you put your beautiful faith in practice!
