ASK AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN TO YOU
We saw in our previous lessons that the Lord Jesus teaches us not to judge and not to give holy things to dogs. In those verses, He warns us against judgementalism and against being undiscriminating. Now He makes this wonderful promise in Matthew 7:7-11. This is what Jesus says.
Matthew 7:7. “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
8 “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
9 “Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone?
10 “Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
