“Ask and It Shall Be Given Unto You ”

Tuesday we looked at Matthew 7:7-11.  Often we quibble over how literally we can take the offer by Jesus to “ask, seek, and knock,” and we miss that it is an awesome invitation into relationship.  We are not ordered to just worship a distant god who is “the boss.”  We are invited into dialogue and discussion with God who walks with us.  Let us listen to this old worship song from the 70s and meditate on the words of invitation and not on our wish list.  Blessings as you accept his invitation!


‘Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone? 10 Or if the child asks for a fish, will give a snake? 11 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!”

(Matthew 7:7-11)
