Why is it that anyone will accept an offer of money without question?
But when it is suggested, even to Christians, that God has both present and eternal riches which are free for the asking*** that they often refuse? In fact, some take offense that it is being suggested that they don't already have it all.

<s9. "So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
10. "For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it will be opened.
11. "Now suppose one of you fathers is asked by his son for a fish; he will not give him a snake instead of a fish, will he?
12. "Or if he is asked for an egg, he will not give him a scorpion, will he?
13. "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?"
