View In My Bible
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 awho, when his son asks for a loaf, bwill give him a stone ? 10 "Or cif he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he? 11 "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, 1how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him! 12 "In everything, 2therefore, dtreat people the same way you want ethem to treat you, for 3this is the Law and the Prophets.

The Narrow and Wide Gates

13 "4Enter through the narrow gate ; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. 14 "For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.

A Tree and Its Fruit

15 "Beware of the 5false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are 6ravenous wolves. 16 "You will f7know them by their fruits. gGrapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17 "So 8every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 "A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.
