12:27 Consider how the flowers 1 grow; they do not work 2 or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory was clothed like one of these! 12:28 And if 3 this is how God clothes the wild grass, 4 which is here 5 today and tomorrow is tossed into the fire to heat the oven, 6 how much more 7 will he clothe you, you people of little faith! 12:29 So 8 do not be overly concerned about 9 what you will eat and what you will drink, and do not worry about such things. 10 12:30 For all the nations of the world pursue 11 these things, and your Father knows that you need them. 12:31 Instead, pursue 12 his 13 kingdom, 14 and these things will be given to you as well.
12:32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father is well pleased 15 to give you the kingdom. 12:33 Sell your possessions 16 and give to the poor. 17 Provide yourselves purses that do not wear out – a treasure in heaven 18 that never decreases, 19 where no thief approaches and no moth 20 destroys.
