Advent Day 14- December 10, 2011 Saturday
7 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.9 “You parents—if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead? 10 Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not! 11 So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.
-Christmas and giving gifts go hand in hand.
-A good parent would not give a stone to their child instead of bread or a snake when they would ask for a fish to eat. Fish and bread were both parts of a child's daily meal during Jesus' time.
-Jesus is telling us if ask God and keep on asking he will supply our daily needs. He is better than a good parent, he is our Father. And His Son, Jesus, came during this advent season to show us we can ask our Father.
