I was thinking about faith this morning.
I was praying that the Lord would provide our basketball players on this trip (and me for that matter) the appropriate "amount" of faith to share what God has done in their lives with the folks we meet here.
Maybe some context would be helpful. We are playing ten games in Guatemala and El Salvador. For each of the games we will partner with a local church. At halftime of our games one of our guys will share their testimony and encourage the audience to connect with the church if they are intrigued by what was said. My prayer is that they will have the faith to do this.
But this morning I thought about it. Maybe I have reversed the order. Maybe faith is built after obedience and taking risks. Maybe we never actually have "enough" faith to do anything but faith isn't the "fuel the drives the engine." I wonder if faith is built as a result of the action and is not a prerequisite for the action.
I hope to write more about our day tonight.
