So I arrived back in Berrien Springs Christmas evening - just in time for a nice dinner and a game -"The Battle of the Sexes." It pits guys against girls in questions that one gender would know and the other probably not. We boys struggled in questions on makeup, cooking and even fell short on a sewing question. So I declare that which has been declared... in many respects (lets not get started) the genders are opposite.
SEED AND MOUNTAIN -Here is a dynamic picture of opposites. In Matthew 17 Jesus is taking the physical to explain the spiritual. So he picks the smallest physical object (mustard seed) that was around him and points to the largest physical object (mountain) and explains the lesson. In was not an effort to measure faith but to show that as little and simple as faith is (asking, expecting, and waiting) it will take care of the biggest that confront us.
