Stupid disciples.

Today I was reading comparable passages in Matthew and Mark about the disciples and their followings of Jesus as He ministered. They watched him feed thousands of people with minimal food, and teach truths, and heal people with diseases they hadn't even heard of. The crazy thing is, that after seeing all this first hand when Jesus walks on the sea - they're absolutely amazed that He had the ability to do that. Mark writes "for they had not understood about the loaves, because their heart was hardened."

How stupid could they be?

So lately, how many times have you doubted Gods ability after watching His hand do great things in your life? How many times have you wondered if He could rid your life of a certain sin, or if He could change minds about something as small as say, same-sex marriages?

How stupid can we be?

Good thoughts. If they could make it as disciples, there is hope for us too. Thanks!
