The Bible tells us that God has given us each a measure of faith. What we do with it is what matters. We can leave it lie dormant and let it waste away or we can continue to use it and make it stronger. It can be likened to the parable of the talents, only substitute faith for talents. If we don't use it and build it up, we won't have the faith we need when the big trials come our way. God already knows how much faith you have in a given situation, but when we are tested we find out where we are lacking. Often, our circumstances show a different picture of our faith than what we believe about ourselves. ---- == Faith don't require sources or proofs. If you require sources or proofs, then faith is just an illusion. Quick reference Encarta Dictionary; = faith = faith [ fayth ] (plural faiths)
noun Definition: 1. belief or trust: belief in, devotion to, or trust in somebody or something, especially without logical proof
