The pity pot

Do you find yourself sitting on your pity pot complaining, whining about life not necessarily to someone but maybe to God Alone?
Maybe you’re complaining to your friends?
Here’s what Jesus said in Luke 17:6 so the Lord said “if you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea, and it would obey you.
Sounds simple enough, so what’s the problem?
In the scene “Jesus heals the paralytic,” in The Chosen the young lady says “if you are willing Rabbi, you know you can.”
To see the faith that’s in her heart and her eyes is very moving.
Jesus looks at her and says “your faith is beautiful.”
And then he says “son take heart your sins are forgiven.”

Mar 2:6 — Mar 2:12
Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts, “Why does this man speak like that? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?” And immediately Jesus, perceiving in his spirit that they thus questioned within themselves, said to them, “Why do you question these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise, take up your bed and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the paralytic— “I say to you, rise, pick up your bed, and go home.” And he rose and immediately picked up his bed and went out before them all, so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!”

I have watched the scene over and over. And I wonder how many times has the Lord asked me to rise pick up my bed and go home?
How many times has he told you to rise?
Get off your pity pot it’s not about you!
