Seek God and his righteousness
  • Esther C:12, 14-16, 23-25
  • Psalm 138:1-3, 7-8
  • Matthew 7: 7-12

Today’s Gospel proclamation promises that God will give us “good gifts” if we ask, seek, and knock on his door. At times our prayers seem to go unheard or unanswered. But if we keep on praying, asking, and seeking, good things will happen. “Asking” is not always easy for many of us, because we prefer to be independent. The thought: “I can do it myself” is ingrained in many of us. We may feel more comfortable in helping others rather than receiving help ourselves! Are we afraid of turning to God and saying: “I need you to be with me, to help me.” Am I wondering that God will not respond to my cry, my need? Do I trust God to love me unconditionally? Do I trust God to help me? Remember a time when you truly felt God’s presence! What was the situation? How did you know God was there? Breathe that memory in! You trusted God and God did not fail you! Ask God for what you need. Stay attentive and notice God’s presence. God is with us! Do we believe that? I pray we do!

Prayer: Abba Father, may I be generous in giving and humble in receiving. Amen.
