3/31/15 Keep Knocking, Seeking, Asking

“The life to which you have been called is not an easy one.  You must always remember to treat others the way you would want them to treat you.  Your Heavenly Father will graciously give you everything you need and be with you with every step you take.  Many among you are parents.  If your children come to you hungry, would any of you give them something inedible or poisonous instead of a good meal?  Of course not!  Though you are all sinners at heart, you would never give harmful gifts to your children when they come to you for help.  So how much more will God, your Heavenly Father, who alone is Holy, give good gifts to all His children when they ask of Him?  If you need something, all you have to do is go to Him in prayer and ask.  Often He will require you to seek out the gifts He gives – it will not usually be bestowed instantly, as if by magic.  You may need to work hard to find what you need, but you will find the door that leads to your gift.  Knock, and He will open it.”

Matthew 7:7-12
