Luke 11 Amplified Bible (AMP)
What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you, then, being evil [that is, sinful by nature], know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask andcontinue to ask Him!”

Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge......................

And don’t take yourself too seriously—
take God seriously.
