What Can We Ask For?

Read this in an old joke book.

" A hopeful young lady went for computer dating service and listed her very precise requirements for a prospective date. She wanted someone who was small, who liked people, preferred formal attire and enjoyed water sports, The computer followed her description to the letter.      It sent her a penguin. "                So, be careful what you ask for !!

What can we ask God for was, was the topic of discussion that my friend brought up. Can we ask for big ticket luxury goods?  How much is enough?  Eventually we came to some concluding statements.         

We can ask for whatever, but these should not lead us from having a close relationship with God.

Jesus said, 'Watch out! Be on guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions .' Luke 12:15.  

 Godliness with contentment is great gain. 1 Tim 6:6 

There are many more verses which can be of help to us  in deciding the kind of lifestyle we lead.  Peace and joy in your choice!

Set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 所 以 , 你 們 若 真 與 基 督
