When I was in junior high, we had candy sales at school to raise money. We had to go around and knock on people’s doors and make our presentation, hoping they would buy what we were selling. I never liked to knock on doors. I felt slightly embarrassed, like I was intruding on someone’s life (which I was!). But there was one house I never worried about when I knocked; it was my grandma and grandpa’s house. The door would fling open and I was invited in with hugs and kisses and they always bought what I was selling and I knew they would before I knocked. But I always had to do “my sales pitch,” which provided free entertainment for them! Why was I not afraid to knock? I knew who was behind the door and what their response to me would be.
Maybe some our reluctance to knock on God’s door, is that we don’t know Him that well? Just a thought…
