Matthew 6:25-34International Standard Version (ISV)
25 “That’s why I’m telling you to stop worrying about your life—what you will eat or what you will drink[a]—or about your body—what you will wear. Life is more than food, isn’t it, and the body more than clothing?26 Look at the birds in the sky. They don’t plant or harvest or gather food into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. You are more valuable than they are, aren’t you? 27 Can any of you add a single hour to the length of your life[b]by worrying?28 And why do you worry about clothes? Consider the lilies in the field and how they grow. They don’t work or spin yarn,29 but I tell you that not even Solomon in all of his splendor was clothed like one of them.30 Now if that is the way God clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and thrown into an oven tomorrow, won’t he clothe you much better—you who have little faith?
31 “So don’t ever worry by saying, ‘What are we going to eat?’ or ‘What are we going to drink?’ or ‘What are we going to wear?’32 because it is the unbelievers[c] who are eager for all those things. Surely your heavenly Father knows that you need all of them!33 But first be concerned about God’s kingdom and his righteousness,[d]and all of these things will be provided for you as well.34 So never worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Matthew 6:19-21International Standard Version (ISV)
Teaching about Treasures
19 “Stop storing up treasures for yourselves on earth, where moths and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal.20 But keep on storing up treasures for yourselves in heaven, where moths and rust do not destroy and where thieves do not break in and steal,21 because where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
