If you wanted something and asked for it you were automatically disqualified from getting it. A girl uses that as a reason why she wouldn't give her chocolate Easter egg to her little sister. I'm reading Rachel's Holiday. Rachel grew up in a Catholic family and that's how the family went about things. Rachel's sister Margaret at one point said, "And Holy God said because you've asked, it makes you unworthy. You weren't humble." Where is that in the Bible and what exactly does that mean? Surely it couldn't apply to anything as trivial as an Easter egg! Does that mean you can't pray for specific things? I'm sorry, I'm a little confused.
