SCRIPTURE COMMENTARY #193
"If you then being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children: how much more will your Father who is in heaven, give good things to them that ask him?"
DEGREES OF HAPPINESS IN HEAVEN: The more a man measures, the more will be measured to him, i. e. the more good a man does on earth, the higher will be his reward in heaven.
[From 'A Practical Commentary on Holy Scripture' by Bishop Knecht, D.D.]
(1899 Douay-Rheims Bible)
