"Where is your faith?"

After Jesus and his disciples took ship to cross over the lake, it is related in Luke's Gospel, there arose a severe storm. Jesus had fallen asleep, and as the wind increased in velocity the disciples, greatly fearing disaster, awoke him, saying, "Master, master, we perish." After Jesus had stilled the storm and the disciples' fear, he said to them, "Where is your faith?" And what a searching question is that for men and women everywhere to put to themselves today, in face of the furious storm which has broken over the greater portion of the world—"Where is your faith?"

Many are the incidents in human experience which bear evidence that it is instinctive in humankind to reach out to a higher power when in times of severe trial their faith has been insufficient to calm and reassure them. Particularly is this true of one who turns to God only when trouble comes, when a situation appears so threatening as to cause him to cry out to God in urgent appeal for help. It is at such testing times that one may see the necessity of taking himself in hand and thoroughly searching his thought to determine how much faith he has in the power of God.
