Jesus is sleeping in a boat; the disciples are crossing the lake. A major strong whips up and the disciples are overwhelmed — remember that several of them were fishermen, so it must have been a bad one to scare them.
In a panic, they wake up Jesus.
He says, “You have little faith; why are you so afraid?” [Matthew 8:23-27]
Upon contemplation, this question of Jesus is eye opening.
Jesus implies that fear is a symptom of faithlessness. Conversely, if we have faith, there should be no reason to fear.
When we have fears — and we all do — we need to, in faith, give them to Jesus and trust him to take care of us.
