Matthew 6:19-34 New American Standard Bible

Treasure in Heaven

19  " Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth , where moth and rust destroy , and where thieves break in and steal . 20  "But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven , where neither moth nor rust destroys , and where thieves do not break in or steal ; 21  for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also .

The Light of the Body

22  " The eye is the lamp of the body ; so then if your eye is clear , your whole body will be full of light . 23  "But if your eye is bad , your whole body will be full of darkness . If then the light that is in you is darkness , how great is the darkness !

God and Mammon

24  " No one can serve two masters ; for either he will hate the one and love the other , or he will be devoted to one and despise the other . You cannot e serve God and wealth .

Care and Anxiety

25  " For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life , as to what you will eat or what you will drink ; nor for your body , as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food , and the body more than clothing ? 26  " Look at the birds of the air , that they do not sow , nor reap nor gather into barns , and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27  "And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life ? 28  "And why are you worried about clothing ? Observe how the lilies of the field grow ; they do not toil nor do they spin , 29  yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these . 30  "But if God so clothes the grass of the field , which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace , will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith ! 31  "Do not worry then , saying , 'What will we eat ?' or 'What will we drink ?' or 'What will we wear for clothing ?' 32  "For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things ; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things . 33  "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness , and all these things will be added to you. 34  "So do not worry about tomorrow ; for tomorrow will care for itself . Each day has enough trouble of its own.
