Matthew 7-8 says “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”
I’ve always thought of the door in this verse as grand, solid, and hard to open. Hours/Days/Years of knocking would be hard to hear, easily ignored.
Then I saw this door yesterday. This verse came to mind and I smiled. I think the door looks more like this now – light, welcoming and already filled with sunlight. Best of all – when I knock, not only am I heard but I am seen.
