Heavenly Treasures

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. 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 to 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 will 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? Why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field and how they grow. They do not work,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 ye be not Judged. For by what judgement you make, you shall be judged., and with what measure you give, so shall you be measured. Why do you see the speck on your brothers eye, but do not notice the log 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 Hipocrite. First cast the log from your own eye, and then you shall see clearly to cast out the speck from your brothers 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. Ask and it shall be given you, Seek and you shall find. Knock and it shall be opened to you. For every one that asks receives, and he that seeks finds, and to him that knocks it shall be opened. What man is there among you who, if his son asks bread, will give him a serpent?
