Don't Take Unbelief Too Seriously

Good Morning! I invite you to consider these WordsWorth Remembering , from Karl Barth:

"Everyone who has to contend with unbelief should be advised that he ought not take his own unbelief too seriously. Only faith is to be taken seriously, and if we have faith as a grain of mustard seed, that suffices for the devil to have lost his game."

My prayer, O Living God, is this:

Today, we live in a world of uncertainty. Though to you the past, present and even the future are clearly visible, we do not see the future. In this uncertainty we may choose to look with doubt or with faith. Give us the gift of faith today, enough faith so that we will not take our own unbelief too seriously, enough faith so that we may see the possibilities you have already invested on our future. Amen

We hope you will find a blessing in this day for you.
