“To You It Has Been Given”
If we have been privileged to be given some insight into your way, O Lord, protect us from arrogance that would lead us to think we’ve seen enough and grant us humility that always wants to see more.
Remind us that it is not enough for us to settle for what we have already seen.
If we have not yet been given some insight into your way, O Lord, move whatever in us needs to be moved to clear our field of vision that we might see and give us a hunger to see.
Remind us that it is tragic for us to settle for what we haven’t seen.
“Then the disciples came and asked him, ‘Why do you speak to them in parables?’ He answered, ‘To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For to those who have, more will be given, and they will have an abundance; but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away.’” (Matthew 13:10-12)
