The word “horizon”, by definition, is a critical concept in our life, because it denotes the limits within which we essentially live and move.
And we all understand that the bigger our horizons are, the better our lives are, because we can predict better, we can explore farther, we are better prepared and we understand this from driving, since when we drive if we look far ahead of us we’ll be able to avoid an obstacle.
If not, then we are at risk because of lack of the time required to have the right reaction. The farther I see, the better I react, the more effective my life is. This is the characteristic of living faith in the living God. As my faith grows, the horizon of my everyday possibilities grows, because I can predict better, prepare myself to be safer, and not to be led by everyday changes that take place around me.
So, faith is a tool for a better life and not a barrier to a better life, as some stubborn people want to present it. The increase of faith is a personal obligation, it cannot be transferred, borrowed, replaced, and is not granted by any natural person to another. It is a completely personal matter and an individual responsibility.
