Listen to the Word
If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! (Matthew 7:11)
Perhaps you were blessed with great parents who deserve a medal for the job they did raising you. Perhaps your parents tried their best, but they frequently failed to provide what you needed. Perhaps your parents did unspeakable harm to you. No matter what you experienced, you can have confidence that not even the best earthly parent can compare to your Heavenly Father. He is perfectly wise, consistently generous, and unbelievably good. Though your mom and dad disappointed you, your Heavenly Father never will.
Live the Word
The Scripture says God loves to give good gifts to his children. Give him that opportunity. Think of something you need right now, and ask him to provide it.
