God is our Loving Parent

7“Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. 8For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. 9Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone? 10Or if the child asks for a fish, will give a snake? 11If 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, NRSV)

How many of you give good things to your kids even when they are getting on your nerves?

When they ask you for what they need, you provide it. And that is how God is to us also.

When we need something God will provide.

Now we need to discern the difference between a need and a want. And know if it isn’t in God’s will it is a want.

But ask God, God will listen and God will respond.
