Lenten Devotion (3/22)

Sunday, March 22nd
Fourth Sunday in Lent — Seek

Matthew 7:7-14
[Jesus said], “Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone? Or if the child asks for a fish, will give a snake? If 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!

In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets.
Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road is easy that leads to destruction, and there are many who take it. For the gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

Our Father, You are our true Parent, who provides every good thing we need each day.  Teach us to ask rightly, to choose the way that leads home to You, and to show others that way to life which leads to You, which You have given us in Your Son, Jesus our Lord.  Amen.
