Jesus is saying that all of our relationships ought to be like those between good fathers and their sons.  A little later we will be told not to worry about anything except whether we are subjecting ourselves to "god's rule:"  not our bodies nor our lives, not food or clothing, not winning or losing.

We ask for what we need in the expectation of getting it, so we can focus on first things first.  This is "irresponsible," "dangerous," "unproductive," and absolutely correct.
