All he wanted was a little more. The orphan, Oliver Twist, had been sentenced to an orphanage at a young age. To ask for seconds was a big “‘no, no!” He was lucky to get what he got. At least that’s the way the story goes. Still, the image of a hungry child is often too much to bear and we give in to those mournful eyes. We, as good parents, want our children to be filled and nourished.
As we grow older our desire for more becomes apparent in many ways. When we’re children we can’t wait to grow up; when we’re teens we can’t wait to get our driver’s license; when we’re in our twenties we can’t wait to move out on our own; then we can’t wait until we’re married, successful and finally retired. Even when we retire, we can’t wait for something. It’s like that commercial where the kids are talking about what it means to want MORE. What we want in life is what motivates us, but what we want after this life is even more important.
I want to go to heaven and I know that God has made that possible for me. I want all my friends to join me there someday, but I don’t know if that will happen. We all need to ask for MORE mercy from God, because we live in a world still controlled by sin. I pray that when the time comes, we will all be ready, because that is where the MORE is waiting for us.There will be no MORE tears, no MORE suffering, no MORE anixiety, depression, lonlieness. God has given us MORE than we deserve. He has blessed us with MORE than we need, because He loves us MORE than anyone else could possibly love us. Do you want MORE in your life? Do you want the assurance of MORE after death? Are you willing to accept this wonderful gift from God? Just ask Him.
Please, Sir, could I have some MORE? Amen!
