Each moment is a gift. That’s why it’s called the “present”.

Luke 11:13

“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?”


Who is the most loving person you know?

Well then…wouldn’t God have to be that loving…and infinitely more?

Jesus’ message to his followers was that God would never give us something that would harm us…no more than a loving parent would.

However, while like a loving father or mother to us…God is not like Santa Claus.

Just because we ask for something that we believe would make us happy…does not mean that what we ask for would in fact do so.

God wants us to experience Love, know Love and be Love.

When we are both receiving God’s love and giving it away…we are fully present to the moment.

This “free-flow” of giving-and-receiving love is basically the personification of the Holy Spirit. When we ask for more of that…get ready for life to the full.

We would then become the fully unique gift to the world that we were intended to be…right now…in this moment.

What could be a better gift than that?
