Have faith in the ocean, not in the wave. Believe in the Lord, not in the little things. But, the tragedy is, you put your trust in little men, in wicked men, in men whom you know are vicious and greedy; but you hesitate, when asked to put faith in the Lord, who is merciful than any father, more loving than any mother, more powerful than any earthly authority, more considerate than any kinsman. You do not doubt each other; but, you develop doubt regarding God. Even laymen talk long and loud, when the topic for discussion is God. No one asks them their credentials.
