Ask, and It Will Be Given

(A)“Ask, (B)and it will be given to you; (C)seek, and you will find; (D)knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for (E)bread, will give him (F)a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? 11 If you then, (G)who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will (H)your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

The Golden Rule

12 “So (I)whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is (J)the Law and the Prophets.

13 (K)“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy[a] that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. 14 For the gate is narrow and (L)the way is hard that leads to life, and (M)those who find it are few.
