Luke 11:5-13

耶穌對他們說:「你們中間誰有一個朋友,半夜去他那裏,給他說:朋友,借給我三個餅罷!
因為我的朋友行路到了我這裏,我沒有什麼可以款待他。
那人從裏面回答說:不要煩擾我了!門已經關上,我的孩子們同我一起在床上,我不能起來給你。
我告訴你們:他縱然不為了他是朋友的緣故,而起來給他,也要因他恬不知恥地切求而起來,給他所需要的一切。
所以,我告訴你們:你們求,必要給你們;你們找,必要找著;你們敲,必要給你們開

因為凡求的,就必得到;找的,就必找到;敲的,就必給他開。
你們中間那有為父親的,兒子向他求餅,反而給他石頭呢﹖或是求魚,反將蛇當魚給他呢
或者求雞蛋,反將蝎子給他呢﹖
你們縱然不善,尚且知道把好東西給你們的兒女,何況在天之父,有不更將聖神賜與求他的人嗎﹖」


On my birthday, God once reminds me the importance of asking. In the
past, I think I never realize the significance of this "cliche": "Ask
and you’ll receive. Seek and you’ll find". I tend to overlook "classic
wisdom" because I’ve heard so many times, how wrong! Jesus can’t be
more clear than this. Just ask. Keep asking. And God doesn’t give us
only what we ask for, He gives us the Holy Spirit! That’s like
everything…




And I remember at that group sharing during Petrus’ talk, a girl talked
about how she still isn’t open enough to entrust everything to God. And
Petrus’ reply was funny, "thought that God would put a snake in your
hands?"
Haha… and this
bible passage actually has a similar reference. Oh yeah, even a father
wouldn’t do that to his son, so God won’t do that for sure.




Thanks be to God!
