In the first reading from Sirach, we read we should never appear before the Lord empty-handed. When we come to beg from him, we have to show him that that we are willing to give him his due, giving him a favor for favor.
It reminded me of a couple of ladies from the south who said that you should never come to anyone’s house with one arm as long as the other. Reminds us of this relationship, that God commanded that we do our part if we want anything from him.
