Proven worth

“Everyone who seeks always finds” (Mt. 7:7).  It’s a principle of proven worth enunciated by our Lord Jesus Christ.  Of course, what’s important is to seek the things of real and lasting value, not the foolish things of the world.  You can check the complete verse in the Bible.  Just as that common proverb that says, “To thine own self be true and it shall follow as day follows night you will be true to everyone.”

Most of the time people make the mistake of seeking the wrong aims or goals.  So they get what they want, the false values here on earth, or false motives and mistaken realities.  It’s important then to be after the true and lasting realities.  It might be well to cite the complete biblical text here: “Ask, and it shall be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.  For the one who asks always receives; the one who searches always finds; the one who knocks will always have the door opened to him” (Mt. 7:7).  

Of course it’s important that in our quest we have that full trust in God and be sincere in our words. God Almighty knows and can read what’s there deep in our hearts, whether real faith and trust and sincere motivations.  We have to be clear and sincere in our relations with God.  Don’t forget the principle applicable also here: “Thou shalt not tempt the Lord your God” or in other similar words: “You shall not put the Lord your God to the test”  (Deut. 6:16; Mt. 4:7).
