Luke 11:12 (b) The teaching in this passage concerning the bread, the fish and the eggs is the same in all three. The wee little child thinks that what he sees is good for him to eat. He sees the round brown stone, and it looks quite like the loaf of bread his mother has taken from the oven. He sees the snake in the grass and thinks it is the same as the eel which his mother cooked in the skillet. And now he sees the scorpion and thinks it is an egg because of its size and shape when rolled up ready to strike. The Lord is teaching us that He must say "no" to some of our requests when He sees that the thing we are asking for would not help us, but would really hurt us.
