Faith the size of a mustard seed is enough to forgive (Luke 17)

Faith the size of a mustard seed is enough to forgive (Luke 17)

“5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” 6 The Lord replied, “If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you…”

My pastor put it like this: when Jesus sets out how they must forgive (in Luke 17:4), the apostles ask for more faith and Jesus responds by telling them to live out the faith that they have.
