Too often, we have been made to feel guilty for questioning our faith. But uncertainty is a companion in this life we cannot avoid. Faith is not faith, if doubt is not present. But sometimes, our skepticism can become so strong and oppressive that it brings harm to our spiritual lives. While we can never fully escape our doubts, we don’t have to be controlled by them.

When it comes to trust in God to provide and care for us, doubt urges us to focus on God’s actions while ignoring our own. Our passage this morning reveals how God’s provision is closely connected to our participation.

Doubt not only affects our relationship with God, but our relationships with one another. It is easier to trust each other when our allegiance to God is clarified and we refrain from comparing ourselves to one another.
