Luke 11:5-13

Jesus highlights Malachi’s picture of a compassionate and loving God, a God whose goodness is even greater than the goodness parents instinctively show for their children. He tells us how good God is, and how good we can be, when he says, “If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?”

We ask for that gift again today, confident that God will hear and answer us.
