Matthew 6:24 Read Every Thursday
No one can serve two masters.
He will either hate the one and love the other,
or be devoted to one and despise the other.
You cannot serve God and mammon.
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life--
what you shall eat or drink--
or about your body-- what you will wear.
Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
"Look at the birds in the sky.
They do not sow or reap.
They gather nothing into barns, yet your Heavenly Father
Are not you more important than they?
Can any of you, by worrying, add a single moment
to your life span?
"Why are you anxious about clothes?
Learn from the way the wildflowers grow.
They do not work or spin.
But I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour
was clothed like one of them.
If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today
and is thrown into the oven tomorrow,
will He not much more provide for you,
oh you of little faith?
"So do not worry and say, what are we to eat?
Or what shall we drink?
Or what are we to wear?
All these things the pagans seek.
Your Heavenly Father knows that you need them all.
"But seek first the Kingdom of God
and His righteousness, and all these things
will be given you besides.
Do not worry about tomorrow.
Tomorrow will take care of itself.
Sufficient for a day is its own evil."
