Matthew 6:19Matthew 6:34

5. Concerning the Material Riches of the Kingdom People

19 1Do anot store up for yourselves treasures on the earth, where bmoth and rust consume and where thieves dig through and steal.

20 But 1store up for yourselves atreasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not bdig through nor steal.

21 For where your treasure is, there will your 1aheart be also.

22 The alamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is 1single, your whole body will be full of light;

23 But if your eye is 1evil, your whole body will be dark. If then the 2light that is in you is adarkness, how great is the darkness!

24 No one can 1serve atwo masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will 2hold to one and despise the other. You cannot 1serve God and 3bmammon.

25 Because of this, I say to you, aDo not be banxious for your 1life, what you should eat or what you should drink; nor for your body, what you should put on. Is not the 1life 2more than food, and the body than clothing?

26 Look at the abirds of heaven. They do not sow nor reap nor gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father nourishes them. Are you not of more value than they?

27 Who among you by being anxious can add one cubit to 1his stature?

28 And why are you aanxious concerning bclothing? Consider well the 1clilies of the field, how they grow. They do not toil, neither do they spin thread.

29 But I tell you that not even aSolomon in all his glory was clothed like one of these.

30 And if God so arrays the agrass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is cast into the furnace, will He not much more bclothe you, you of clittle faith?

31 Therefore do not be aanxious, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, With what shall we be clothed?

32 For all these things the Gentiles are anxiously seeking. For your 1heavenly Father knows that you aneed all these things.

33 But seek first His 1akingdom and His 1brighteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

34 Therefore do not be aanxious for 1btomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself; sufficient for the day is its own 2evil.
