Best Gifts

Read Luke 11:1–54

Most parents look forward to Christmas and birthdays for the sheer joy of seeing their children open carefully chosen gifts. They try to give the very best presents because it is a way to show their children how much they love them. Our Heavenly Father is like that too.

“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 the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” (Luke 11:13).

Sometimes, a parent’s giving turns out disastrously. Our Heavenly Father, however, always gives gifts that are right on target. In fact, they’re the best gifts. In this passage God offers the gift of the Holy Spirit to those who ask for it.

The Holy Spirit is a fulfillment of Jesus’ promise to send a counselor to guide His disciples into all truth. The Holy Spirit helps people understand their need of the Savior and teaches them how to live. What better gift than One who knows the heart and mind of God? He wants to share that knowledge.

Prayer for Today: Holy Spirit, lead me into all truth.

Quicklook: Luke 11:5–13
