As I thought of today’s passage, Matthew 7:7-11, I thought of all the great gifts I received from my father over the years. He’s given me a video game system, stereo system, clothing, money, etc. Yet, love has always been his greatest gift. If my earthly father knows how to give great gifts to his children, how much more my heavenly father. Sometimes, He gives me the things I desire. Sometimes, He chooses not to give me the things I desire. Yet, everything he has given to me has turned out for my good even if it didn’t seem that way at the time. Believe it or not, God always answers every request we make of Him. It’s either yes, no, or wait. Regardless of His response, may we always remember His gifts are good.
