It is not the greatness of our faith, but the greatness of God, which counts...
Here's one for today from Luther noted in McGrath's book:
Even if my faith is weak, I still have exactly the same treasure and the same Christ as others. There is no difference ... It is like two people, each of whom owns a hundred gold coins. One may carry them around in a paper sack, the other in an iron chest. But despite these differences, they both own the same treasure. Thus the Christ who you and I own is one and the same, irrespective of the strength or weakness of your faith or mine.
