DG BookGospel: Matthew 8:23-27
Jesus got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Without warning, a fierce storm burst upon the lake, with waves sweeping the boat.
But Jesus was asleep. The disciples woke him up and cried, “Lord save us! We are lost!” But Jesus answered,
“Why are you so afraid, you of little faith?” Then he stood up and rebuked the wind and sea; and it became completely calm.
The disciples were asto­nished. They said, “What kind of man is he? Even the winds and the sea obey him.”

REFLECTION:
Time and again, when something would go wrong, the disciples would either complain or cry out in fear.
Again and again, Jesus comes to their aid and (in several occasions) chides them for their lack of faith.
It will take some time before these men, plucked by Jesus from their ordinary day-to-day activities, will become the fearless, zealous,
and committed leaders of the church that they will eventually be. There’s a profound patience with them that we see in Jesus.
He knew their fears, their weaknesses, their faults. He knew that it would take time before they were ready to lead.
But he was patient with them. He would gently chide or rebuke them from time to time. But he never gave up on them, just as he would never give up on us,
no matter how many times we fall, no matter how many times we find ourselves, like the disciples, terrified and crying to him for help,
because our faith is still not strong enough.
