You may have heard the parable of having “faith like a mustard seed,” the fact that God can take faith as small as a mustard seed and turn it into a giant mustard tree of faith. I’ve often found myself using that “mustard seed” as all the faith that I need. Using the excuse, “If God says I only need a mustard seed, then why push for more?”
Honestly, for the most part, I’ve just accepted my little mustard-seed faith and moved on.
Fast forward to a few weekends ago.
I’m walking out of the lodge at Brundage Mountain when all of a sudden, I saw this skier with a bright orange vest that says, “Blind Skier” and his “Guide” close behind him. Have you ever seen a blind skier? This was a first for me. I was floored.
Do you want to talk about faith? I saw the literal representation of just that on Brundage that afternoon. It got me thinking, “I want THAT faith!” I want the faith of that skier who is enjoying life knowing that his “Guide” has his back.
Forget faith like a mustard seed. I want faith like a blind skier!
