Faith

I was struck today by a thought that I wanted to pass on to you. In the world of Church, faith is a topic that is tossed around a great deal. We are supposed to have faith for everything from a parking space to healing cancer. I think the more common use of faith is a faith in the ability of others to supply our needs.

There is no need to go into specifics, but I wonder how many people in good churches have been taken to the cleaners by a man or woman who had and “idea from God”. This business idea was supposed to bring great wealth to all who invested and “advance the Kingdom of God”. Typically these schemes rob church people of their money and leave them feeling used and embarrassed.

Why is it that we find it easier to have faith in some outlandish business idea than from God? God has a pretty good track record of doing the things he says he will do.
