Do you feel you don’t deserve to ask God for anything? How big do you think His heart is?

… we receive from Him whatever we ask, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him. – 1 John 3:22
        My friends and I had a mountain of assignments as the production crew and personal assistants (PA) for our community event. We struggled with finding time for the preparations in the midst of our already hectic schedules.
       Because of that, one of my friends prioritized her other assigned speakers over a speaker who is a friend. She got a lot of ribbing from us with the way she was “ignoring” his needs, especially when she expressed her wish to join him in the banquet hall as his PA. She got teased some more when she reported late for duty. We were all there for an early call time. So imagine the howl of good-natured protest which arose when she was the only one among us who was privileged to join the bigwigs in the banquet hall.
       But come to think of it, it wasn’t really unfair. She was probably blessed because, beyond this particular assignment, she had been God’s good and faithful servant who sacrificed a lot for the community. And besides, she was the only one who asked. It was simply a case of a delighted God granting her what she asked for. Lella M. Santiago (lellams88@gmail.com)
Reflection: Do you feel you don’t deserve to ask God for anything? How big do you think His heart is?
Lord Jesus, when I’m feeling unworthy, remind me about Your blind love for me.
St. John Neumann, bishop, pray for us.
