11If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
11 Verse 11. If ye, then, being evil] πονηροιοντες, who are
radically and diabolically depraved, yet feel yourselves led, by
natural affection, to give those things to your children which are
necessary to support their lives, how much more will your Father
who is in heaven, whose nature is infinite goodness, mercy, and
grace, give good things-his grace and Spirit (πνευμααγτον, the
Holy Ghost, Lu 11:13,) to them who ask him? What a picture is
here given of the goodness of God! Reader, ask thy soul, could
this heavenly Father reprobate to unconditional eternal damnation
any creature he has made? He who can believe that he has, may
believe any thing: but still GOD IS LOVE.
