and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
Which one of you would hand his son a stone
when he asked for a loaf of bread,
or a snake when he asked for a fish?
If you then, who are wicked,
know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will your heavenly Father give good things
to those who ask him. Mt 7
Who have I made God into? Could God be at least as good as my best friend? At least as good as I would be with someone whom I love very much?
Loving God and Father, help me to trust that you are the giver of all good gifts. Help me to trust in your provident love, your constant care and attention, though often I do not understand your ways.
