Biblical Thoughts

The Bible’s Blessed verse is (Mathew 7: 7&8) Ask and you shall receive: Seek and you shall find: Knock and it will be opened. This verse has a spiritual and materialistic meaning. What is the Spiritual meaning? First of all we need spiritual humility. Secondly we should be souls who thirst for the scriptural word. Thirdly we have to realize that after our life on earth—there’s a heavenly place reserved for us by God. Fourthly we should not be trapped by the snares of Sin as it causes death.

The next level of meaning is a material blessing from God. God our creator knows all our needs and by prayer we can overcome all financial obstructions. God will open his hands and bless you financially.

Next I would like to take up the parable of the seed and try to legitimize its Christian meaning. In the parable, a farmer throws seeds on open ground. It is not able to grow and becomes infertile. A spiritual meaning is we do not pay ears to the word of God. At a materialistic level we are confronted by life’s worries and become hopelessly discouraged. The next seed falls on rock and they also perish. A spiritual meaning is we accept the word but chose to ignore it. In life’s situations we become failures to achieve goals. We feel disappointed with our self. We to have face shame and ignominy. The next bunch of seeds falls on thorns. A spiritual meaning of it is we become God-haters. At a materialistic level we chose to live a life of profligacy. The next bunch of seeds falls on good ground where it flourishes and yields good fruit. A moral implication is that we live a spiritual like tuned to the will of God and by supplication ask God for the nets mercy and blessing. At a materialistic level we are blessed abundantly by God. We can live a life that is hunky dory. We are able to experience a peace that passes all understanding.
