1. If we ask God for bread He will give us bread [bright careers] and not stones [hardships].
2. If we ask God for fish [healing - physical, emotional etc.] He will give us that and not snakes [sicknesses, ailments, feebleness, curses etc.]
3. If we ask God for eggs [productive relationships] He will give us such and not scorpions [hurting companions, abusive relationships or partners that sting us].
(Based on Luke 11.9-13)
