Asking amiss

February 20, 2010

Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts (James 4:3). When we ask something of God “amiss”, then He manifests His wrath if he fulfills our petition, and manifests loving-kindness when he does not fulfill it. – Blessed Augustine
