I am sure that our faith is being measured through how we live our lives...by our goodness. How we deal with other people. How we act even when no one is watching.

I believe that it is being measured through our truthfulness and kindness. You don't have to be rich to be truthful and kind. You can help even if you have no money.

The Bible is clear that faith is measured in terms of both quantity and quality. We understand this to mean that faith is an action which treats things that have not yet happened, and things which are not empirically evident, as truth. There is no practical distinction between the object of faith and reality to the believer. Faith is the ability to believe in deed.

Really? how would you measure somebody's lack of faith through that logic? by his lack of goodness? I think that's a bit unfair don't you think?

I think you're misunderstanding faith with the two other virtues? How do you use truthfulness and kindness to measure faith? I am quite confused now.

Faith is personal and subjective. There is a way to measure your faith, measure it relative to doubt.

I guess everyone has their own opinion about faith and we don't have to question that. No one can really know for certain how faith is being measured. So there's no right or wrong answers here anyway.

Faith is something that I value in my life. I strongly believe in God and I know that by doing what I know is right based on what I learned from His words will be the basis or measurement of my faith in Him.

Pope Francis made the teaching of the Bible easy for us to follow. Totally makes sense to me. Food is God's gift to us, to waste it is to waste God's gift.

God measures our faith based on what we do—our obedience—not by our feelings, the emotions we express, or our words.

Yeah, but isn't faith measured by how much you believe in God and not by how much you help mankind?

Sometimes it is hard to understand the Bible. To do an easy thing as not wasting food is something that everyone should follow.
