What If the Lord Said to You, "What Do You Wish?"

Watch this, “Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Him with her sons, kneeling down and asking something from Him. And He said to her, ‘What do you wish?’ She said to Him, ‘Grant that these two sons of mine may sit, one on Your right hand and the other on the left, in Your kingdom'” (Matthew 20:20, 21).
The mother of James and John approached Jesus properly. Then He spoke a wide open question, “What do you wish?” How would you answer that question? She went way beyond anything I would have imagined, and it was something that Jesus did not have the authority to grant. Nevertheless, the Lord is willing to do just about anything for us, if we understand His will, that is, what kinds of request He grants and what kinds He does not.
Think for the rest of the day what you would say to Him, if He asked you that question.
