I'm thinking about Thomas tonight. Thomas has a reputation for being doubting -- for having a smaller faith that the rest of the disciples. I think we need to give Thomas more credit.

  1. If you look at the Bible, you will see that Thomas is only asking to see what the rest of the disciples have already scene -- a look at the risen Jesus.
  2. Thomas can teach us that it OK to ask questions -- to confront God with our worries. There are things that nibble at our faith, and Jesus calls us to be honest about them.
  3. When we trust God -- when we step out in faith -- we will be blessed. That isn't the opposite of the second on in the list. Stepping out in faith can bring blessings. Sometimes one of the ways we do that is to trust God with enough faith to ask questions.
It's OK to be Thomas. God is big enough for our doubts and our questions. God is big enough for our faith. God is enough.
