“Or what man is there of you, whom if his sonne aske bread, will hee giue him a stone?”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
Mt 7:9,10 If his son shall ask bread, will he give him a stone? The assurance of an answer to prayer is based on the fact that God is our Father. He treats his children as a good and wise earthly parent would. No kind parent would mock his child by answering his cry for bread with stones. Bread and fish were the chief articles of food of the Galilean peasant.
