Lack of Faith: Don’t Forget The Mustard

I can’t stand it when restaurants leave something out of my meal.


Y’all know what I’m talking about. Whether it’s the Chick-Fil-A sauce for your fries or the tomato on your burger. Maybe it’s the ketchup on your hotdog or the mayo on your sandwich. Whatever it is, no one likes their food not being right.


To many people it’s offensive. It’s like, “I’m paying my money & you can’t remember what I asked for?”


The saddest part is that a lot of food places don’t seem bothered when it happens. I know there’s been plenty of times that it’s happened to me & the restaurants acted like they really didn’t care. Even though it was my time & my money, it didn’t bother them that I didn’t get what I asked for. 


Please, I had to request a refund on almost 4 meals in a week from Uber Eats because places kept getting the orders wrong & sadly, only one showed true, kind customer service.


All I kept thinking was how selfish & ungrateful they were acting by refusing to work with me, even though I was giving them my time & my money.


It was sad.


You feel where I’m coming from? Understand the frustration & aggravation that I felt? Now, imagine how God feels when it comes to us.


Think about it. One of the main things he asked of us is faith. I’m not saying beautiful songs don’t reach Him or that your tithes & offering is not received. What I am saying is that without faith none of that is pure.


It all becomes a facade that will result in your not being recognized at heaven’s gates.


‭‭Matthew‬ ‭17:20‬ states, “...if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible. ”


Faith is necessary for you to please God.


He paid the price for all our sins. The least we can do is show our gratefulness by having faith in the One who paid it all.


So, next time we want to doubt God or go off of our feelings rather than our faith, let’s remember that He paid the price & deserves everything that was requested. In otherwards, “Don’t forget the mustard.”
