Scripture:     John 20:24-29; also Matthew 14:31; James 1:6; Mark 11:23

Summary:     We all have doubts, and yet doubt has a bad reputation among a “people of faith.”  We often think about doubt as the opposite of faith, and in some ways the Bible agrees.  But sometimes trust and doubt work in very similar ways that strengthen our faith.  Trust can strengthen our faith when the limits of our faith are tested and we discover God’s power and faithfulness.  Doubt can work in similar ways, questioning the limits of what we think we know and using those questions to draw us deeper into faith.   How do we properly hold the tension between trust and doubt without erring too much towards “blind faith” or “dishonest doubt”?
