He Loves to Give

“All of Jesus’ teaching on prayer in the Gospels can be summarized with on word:  ask. His greatest concern is that our failure or reluctance to ask keeps us distant from God. But that is not the only reason he tells us to ask anything. God wants to give us good gifts. He loves to give.”

– Paul Miller, A Praying Life, p.134 (italics in original)
