The Mountain: Gifts From God

Next Jesus emphasized the importance of being willing to receive gifts from God, in every situation (51):

Ask, and God will make sure you receive what you need.

Seek, and God will make sure you find what you need.

Knock, and God will make sure the door is opened to what you need.

Everyone who asks will receive, everyone who seeks will find, and the door will be opened to everyone who knocks.

Would any of you fathers give your son a stone, when he asks for bread? Or would you give him a snake, when he asks for a fish?

As bad as you are, you know how to give good things to your children.

So, since God is perfectly good, surely we can trust him to give us good things whenever we ask.
