KEEP ASKING, KEEP SEEKING, KEEP KNOCKING


There is a progression in this persistence: asking, seeking and knocking. Now let’s consider their meaning, “asking means making a simple request. Seeking implies a stronger desire and a more definite kind of request. It is something that takes time. It implies a greater sense of urgency. Knocking shows determination to get an answer.”
