Topic of the Week   (Amshir 13-19)
Persevering in Prayer


Verse of the Week
"'Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!'"

- Matthew 7:7-11

Meaning: The threefold exhortation, ask-be given, seek-find, knock-be opened, promises the availability of God's help. The verbs are present progressives: be asking, be seeking, be knocking. Note the synergy: our effort is commanded, but never apart from the help of God. We ask in prayer; seek by learning God's truth; and knock by doing God's will.

Men are called evil not to condemn the whole race, but to contrast the goodness that is in men- which is from God but mixed with sin- with the goodness of God, which is perfect. If imperfect and even wicked people can do good, how much more can God, in whom there is no evil.



Proverb of the Week
"A faithful man will abound with blessings, but he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished."

- Proverbs 28:20
