Favours or Trust?

There’s an old saying that we need to be careful what we wish for. James and John would have done well to bear that in mind when they asked Jesus for a favour because, as he quickly points out, they have no idea of the implications of what they’re asking. We are all tempted to ask favours of Jesus – but it’s better to trust in his love for us and to ask for the grace to be able to respond to whatever it is he asks of us, rather than the other way round.
