Dear Friend in the Lord,

Our Needs” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus assures His disciples that whatever they “ask” and “search” for in their faith, God will never fail to answer in His Personal, Merciful and Compassionate Ways.  Ponder on, “In His Wisdom, God will always give us what is the ‘best’ for us . . . Trust and Love God more wholeheartedly.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 7:7-12

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. Everyone who asks receives; everyone who searches finds; everyone who knocks will have the door opened.

‘Is there anyone among you who would hand his son a stone when he asked for bread? Or would hand him a snake when he asked for a fish? If you, then, evil as you are, know how to give your children what is good, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

‘So always treat others as you would like them to treat you; that is the Law and the Prophets.’
