389  : Treasure In Heaven

"DO not collect for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust do damage,
and where thieves break through and steal.
But collect for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust do damage, and where thieves do not break through and steal.
For where your treasure is, there will be your heart also.
"The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is sound, your whole
body shall be full of light. But if your eye is evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness.

 If therefore the light that is in you is darkness,how great is that darkness!
"No man can serve two masters, for either he will hate one and love the other,
 or else he will stand by one and despise the other.
You cannot work for both God and worldly wealth.
Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your well-being, what you shall eat,
or what you shall drink, nor about your body and what you shall put on.
Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
"Behold the fowls of the air. They sow not, nor do they reap, nor gather into barns.
 Yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one minute to his life?
And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field and how they grow.
They do not work, nor do they spin.
And yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not dressed like one of these.
Therefore, if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today grows and tomorrow is cast into the oven,
 shall he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
"Therefore do not worry saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?'
or 'With what shall we be clothed?', for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
But seek first the kingdom of God, and his'righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well.
 Take therefore no thought for tomorrow, for tomorrow shall take care of itself.
The troubles of today are enough for today.
"Judge not, that you be not judged.
For by what judgment you make, you shall be judged, and with what measure you give,
so shall you be measured.
Why do you see, the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
How can you say to your brother, 'Let me pull out the speck from your eye,'
when, behold, there is a log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first cast out the log from your own eye,
 and then you shall see clearly to cast out the speck from your brother's eye.

"Do not give that which is holy to the dogs, nor cast your pearls before swine,
 lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and attack you.
