Sermon Problems - Ask, Seek, Knock?

Some people make even make a problem out of the Sermon on the Mount.

It's just too easy: 
  • Ask and it is given,
  • Seek and you will find,
  • Knock and the door is opened.

But they say - "But there are so many things to ask for - what if I ask the wrong thing?" 

And others say - "And I could be looking forever if I don't know what to look for..."

Not to mention those who say - "But life is a hallway full of doors - which one should I knock on?"

Really?

So the simple resolution is this: Ask for what question to ask. Keep your eyes open for clues which tell you what you should be seeking for. 

In short, the next door you knock on, look the person who opens it right in the eye, and ask them, "Is there a better door I should be knocking on?"

You'll find the only bad question is the one you don't ask, there's no harm in looking, and you'd be amazed what you you'll find when you open any door at random. 

When you trust yourself, every move is the right one.

It takes practice, this self-trust and self-faith stuff.

So start today. 

You're life is only getting shorter, as they say.
