(Luke 11:9-13, RSV)
Questions for reflection:
- Many times, people stop reading at verse 10 but to understand it, you must keep reading. In what ways do I interpret this passage? Do I ask God for material things and earthly favors or do I ask God for his Holy Spirit?
- When have I been too proud to ask God for help?
- Think about the times that God has bestowed His Holy Spirit on you. How did it change your life?
- Reflect on when you have done God's will for you. In what ways has doing his will made your life harder? In what ways has it made your life easier? Is it worth it?
- EXTRA CREDIT: Read Luke 11:14-28. What does this passage mean? How have you shored up your soul to keep it from being overcome by the devil?
