Keep Asking, Seeking, Knocking(A)

(B)“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; (C)seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 11 (D)If a son asks for [a]bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13 If you then, being evil, know how to give (E)good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”
