An Excuse to Say "Yes"

Reg Grant on November 6, 2009 in DTS Devotional

When my kids were small they would ask for whatever appealed to them at the moment. I said no a lot, but I looked for excuses to say yes. God feels the same way. Jesus reminds us in Luke 11:11-13, “What father among you, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, although you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” Ask the Lord for wisdom to know when to say yes. Then look for an excuse to say it.
