Bible: Matt 6:19-33

Lasting Treasure

6:19Do not accumulate for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth 1  and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. 6:20 But accumulate for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 6:21 For where your 2  treasure 3  is, there your heart will be also.

6:22The eye is the lamp of the body. If then your eye is healthy, 4  your whole body will be full of light. 6:23 But if your eye is diseased, 5  your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!

6:24No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate 6  the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise 7  the other. You cannot serve God and money. 8 

Do Not Worry

6:25Therefore I tell you, do not worry 9  about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t there more to life than food and more to the body than clothing? 6:26 Look at the birds in the sky: 10  They do not sow, or reap, or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds 11  them. Aren’t you more valuable 12  than they are? 6:27 And which of you by worrying can add even one hour to his life? 13  6:28 Why do you worry about clothing? Think about how the flowers 14  of the field grow; they do not work 15  or spin. 6:29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his glory was clothed like one of these! 6:30 And if this is how God clothes the wild grass, 16  which is here today and tomorrow is tossed into the fire to heat the oven, 17  won’t he clothe you even more, 18  you people of little faith? 6:31 So then, don’t worry saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 6:32 For the unconverted 19  pursue these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 6:33 But above all pursue his kingdom 20  and righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
