Matthew 7:6-8 The Passion Translation (TPT)
6 “Who would hang earrings on a dog’s ear or throw pearls[a] in front of wild pigs? They’ll only trample them under their feet and then turn around and tear you to pieces!
7 “Ask, and the gift is yours. Seek, and you’ll discover. Knock, and the door will be opened for you. 8 For every persistent one will get what he asks for. Every persistent seeker will discover what he longs for. And everyone who knocks persistently will one day find an open door.[b]
