you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will
be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he
who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will
be opened. "Which of you fathers, if your son asks
for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he
asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then,
though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to
your children, how much more will your Father in heaven
give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!" (Luke
