Ask, Seek and Knock


Extract

Jesus said, “Is there anyone among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? … Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened”. (Matthew 7:7-9)

ThoughtsThought

Perhaps we should try harder to be more like our children. If they want something, they seek us out and ask. If their request is not granted, they persist.

ReflectionsReflection

Lord Jesus, I place my trust in you.

Prayer: Solace

May Christ support us all the day long,
till the shadows lengthen,
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over
and our work is done.
Then in his mercy
may he give us a safe lodging,
and holy rest
and peace at the last. Amen.
