Ask, Seek, Knock

7:7-11pp -- Lk 11:9-13

7 "Ask and it will be given to you;1 seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds;2 and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. 9 "Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 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 good gifts3 to those who ask him! 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you,4 for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.5

The Narrow and Wide Gates

13 "Enter through the narrow gate.6 For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

A Tree and Its Fruit

15 "Watch out for false prophets.7 They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.8 16 By their fruit you will recognize them.9 Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?10 17 Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
