Faith is trust before understanding. It is childlike–naive even. Children don’t need to know the mechanical components of a carousel to know what it’s for. They see a horse or an elephant go in motion and they know exactly what to do. In this way they see clearer than us adults. They are not bridled by the weight of comprehension. Do you think if Peter had contemplated what it meant to walk on water that he would have made it out of the boat? I doubt it. No, he accepted the behavior like a child would. He did what he saw his Lord doing. The lack of faith in us is often not from our lack of experience but from experience which we have not taken as simple children of The King. Great faith is simple faith, let’s not complicate the matter.
