Bible Commentary for Matthew 7:10

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 7:10


7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth - Provided he ask aright, and ask what is agreeable to God's will.

7:11 To them that ask him - But on this condition, that ye follow the example of his goodness, by doing to all as ye would they should do to you. For this is the law and the prophets - This is the sum of all, exactly answering #Mt 5:17|. The whole is comprised in one word, Imitate the God of love. Thus far proceeds the doctrinal part of the sermon. In the next verse begins the exhortation to practise it.

7:12 #Luke 6:31|.
