Jesus said to his disciples, 'Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For the one who asks always receives; the one who searches always finds; the one who knocks will always have the door opened to him. Is there a man among you who would hand his son a stone when he asked for bread? Or would hand him a snake when he asked for a fish? If you, then, who are evil, know how to give your children what is good, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
'So always treat others as you would like them to treat you; that is the meaning of the Law and the Prophets.'
The image of God as parent and we as children is a recurring theme in the Gospels because it helps us to understand many things. God wants what is good for us and we can trust in God's love for us: 'Who would hand his son a snake when he asked for a fish?' The unspoken other side to this is the question "Who would hand his son a snake when he asked for a snake?' Sometimes, as parents, we have to deny our children's requests because our children have not reached a level of wisdom where they can see that what they are asking for would be bad for them. So if our child asked for a snake, we might give them a lizard instead, or pursuade them to just watch the snake from a safe distance. We give them something when they ask, but it is not always exactly what they ask for. Similarly with us, we need to ask God for what we need, or what we think we need. If it is something we truly need, we will receive what we asked for. Sometimes, however, we will receive something different from what we asked for - if we take the asking literally - but it will be something that leads to grow in the way we need. In fact, in a sense, it will be what we thought we were asking for; something that fulfills the need we were hoping to fulfill, just not in the way we thought it should be fulfilled.
