9. walking on water
By Baker Street
In the Gospels, in Matthew Chapter Fourteen, one finds the account of Jesus walking on the water. When Peter joined him in this feat, he soon lost hope and began to sink away in the water. With the aid of Jesus’ faith he was then restored to his position atop the water.
The above illustrates in a proverbial sense that faith is the basic psychological building blocks of life. Without it one looses hope in difficult circumstances and founders. With it one can surmount the difficulties and obstacles one faces in your life.
One gets faith in abstract entities such as an omnipotent God, or more conventional faith which entails faith in oneself, one’s fellow man, and goodness of life in general.
People believe what they believe, because they need to. If a flower is not watered, it withers away and dies.
