 Youth Time Alone with God

Jesus used that phrase, “Take heed to yourselves,” in another connection. He tied it to having an undiscouraged, creative faith in people. When the disciples asked that their faith be increased, it wasn’t so much faith in God as faith in people—in wobbly people—that needed to be increased.

       Such faith, He said, could transplant a mulberry tree into the most unstable soil in the world—the sea! You and I can make souls stable by a creative faith. Never did the world need people of creative faith so much as now, for a vast cynicism has crept across our spirits. We are falling to pieces for lack of them. The Epistle to Diognetus (second century) says of the Christians, “They hold the world together.” This was written at a time when the social order was falling to pieces around them. The Christians did not belong to that decaying order—they belonged to the undecaying kingdom of God. Therefore they held the world together by their faith.

       They did then, they must now. We must, by our creative faith, hold society and individuals from falling to pieces. So grow in your belief in people, in their possibilities, in the fact that the worst can become the best. Take heed to yourself, and let nothing hurt your faith in the weakest.

O Christ, help me this day to believe in people as You did. And help me to remake them by that very faith. Amen.
