Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus Answers our Prayers: In today’s Gospel, Jesus assured His disciples, “Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you.”  Let us be more fully conscious of the very deep unconditional love God has for us.  He gives us only the very “best”; beyond what we deserve and expect.


Fr Philip Heng, S.J


Jesus said to his disciples: ‘So I say to you: Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; everyone who searches finds; everyone who knocks will have the door opened.

‘What father among you, if his son asked for a fish, would hand him a snake? Or if he asked for an egg, hand him a scorpion? If you then, evil as you are, know how to give your children what is good, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!’


TODAY'S POINTERS ON GOD'S WORD
As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • Many of us love our children and family naturally and give them the very best of all that we have, often spoiling them in the process. We call that “love.”  

  • God our Father in today’s Gospel is infinitely more loving. Such divine and unconditional love is beyond our human comprehension. Understandably so as our experiences of human love is always conditional.

  • Thank God sincerely from your heart for His infinite love for us.  Then ask Him, “Lord, how can I love you more?”
