Feb. 18, 2016 (Matt 7:7-12)

“Ask and it will be given to you…” Still continuing the theme of the importance of prayer, Jesus urges us to ask so that God the Father can be generous. Sometimes, we feel reluctant to ask, to make petition for various reasons like our unworthiness. However, the refusal to offer prayer of petition in reality manifests pride and a lack of love. One commentator put it quite bluntly. “The best attitude we can have toward God is that of a beggar who knows that he is loved and called to life-begging for oneself and for God.”
