Reading: Matthew 7: 7-8
I took a trip one weekend to a cabin in a remote part of Pennsylvania. A bunch of my friends and I went there to get away and spend some time together before we all went our separate ways at the end of a summer working together. We stopped at a grocery store on the way there to get supplies, including all the trimmings for a spaghetti dinner, complete with a nice salad.
When the time came to prepare the meal, we could not find the lettuce for the salad. We knew we bought some at the store, but we could not find it anywhere. We turned the cabin upside down and looked in the car, but no lettuce. So, we didn't have a salad with our meal.
The next morning we were packing to go home and a member of our group came into the cabin with, you guessed it, the lettuce. We had a good laugh and asked her where she found it. It seems the lettuce rolled under my car as we were getting the gear out the day before. It was there all along, we just didn't know where to find it.
Ask and you shall receive. Search and you will find. Even if it is lettuce you are looking for! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
