Matthew 7:11 NASB "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!"
I didn't truly understand it until I became a father! Today's verse speaks about fathers giving good gifts to our children despite our evil ways and how God our Father will give to those who ask Him! It was late at night when the call came from one of our daughters and son in law that they had no hot water! I could have just told them to call a plumber but knowing how late it was and knowing how to fix it, I took a ride! As I drove over, I thought how all she had to do was call and I would be there (sounds like good lyrics for a song! LOL) and how God works like that too - all we need to do is reach out to Him, asking that His Will be done in our lives. That asking is called prayer, speaking to God and guess what - there's no waiting or being put on hold, you don't have to press 1 to get Him or 2 to speak to Jesus or 3 to speak to the Holy Spirit - nope! Why not make the call today! All we need to do is call and He will be there!! peace, tom
