Which <br />of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will <br />give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for <br />an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, <br />though you are evil, know how to give good <br />gifts to your children, how much more will <br />your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to <br />those who ask him!"<br />
