Jesus called His disciples to be passionate for God. Jesus used continuous verbs for “asking, seeking, and knocking,” in order to challenge His disciples to look up continuously and with perseverance.

Then Jesus summed up His ethical teaching with the Golden Rule: “Do to others what you would have them do to you.”
