Looking and Finding

There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something.  You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.

 — J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit.

We are all looking for something.

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.

— Jesus of Nazareth, Matthew 7:7-8, ESV.

We can look, but there is only one way to find.

I am the way, and the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.

— Jesus of Nazareth, John 14:6, ESV.

But do not follow a fake Jesus.  The real Jesus claimed to be God and man, and for it he was condemned, and gave his life on a cross.  Ponder who this almighty God really is.

Find.
