This was my favorite bible verse when I was younger:
"I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
Because, being a SW fan, I automatically assumed that being a really good Christian enabled you to use telekinesis to pick up mountains and move them. Never mind that Jesus never did that. Every time I prayed to "grow in faith" I imagined myself rearranging the face of the earth. I tried moving the mountain near my house almost every day.
When I got a little older, my Sunday school teacher said it was metaphorical for obstacles in life.
I always thought that you wouldn't need to fix problems in life if you could move mountains and other similarly large landmarks.
Getting bad grades in school? Crush school with the Himalayas. Kid picking on you? Squish him with the Empire State Building. If it takes too long to get to someplace, move all the mountains and houses in the way, and put them back after you walk through.
I think life would be easier if we could move the darn actual mountains.
