“Ask, and you will receive; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks will receive, and anyone who seeks will find, and the door will be opened to those who knock. Would any of you who are fathers give your son a stone when he asks for bread? Or would you give him a snake when he asks for a fish? As bad as you are, you know how to give good things to your children. How much more, then, will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!” Matthew 7:7-11 GNT
I only began to really understand what it is saying here in Matthew after I became a mother. When my oldest was about 3 and asked me for something, usually in his sweet baby voice, I would swoon, then understand how true Matthew’s words really are. I know how to give good things to my children and I know God loves me more than I could ever love my children. So how much more does He want to give to me? To us?
