Today's Lectionary Text

Luke 17:5-10

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”

He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.

“Suppose one of you has a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Will he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, ‘Come along now and sit down to eat’? Won’t he rather say, ‘Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drink’? Will he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do? So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.’”

Today's Devotional

A mustard seed is 1-3 mm, or for you non-metric types, one-eighth of an inch. That's pretty small.

Jesus is likely thinking of the smallest object the apostles would be familiar with to illustrate the power of faith.

Think back to times when you doubted your faith. What was your mustard seed moment? How did your faith get you through it?
