Jesus was using this parable to illustrate a point--to the one who loves, more love will be possible, to the one who prays, more prayer is possible. When people tell me they will help people when "they have time," "get more money", and so on, I simply shrug my shoulders, for I have found you simply do it--and the rest will follow, and it is worth it to see a young guy hungry and with out socks, eat and smile, to see a young girl who has been ignored reach out and smile when I take time to talk. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
