Money, Money, Money

Matthew 6:19-24, 33-34

 

19 “Stop collecting treasures for your own benefit on earth, where moth and rust eat them and where thieves break in and steal them.  20 Instead, collect treasures for yourselves in heaven, where moth and rust don’t eat them and where thieves don’t break in and steal them.  21 Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.  22 “The eye is the lamp of the body.  Therefore, if your eye is healthy, 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 in you is darkness, how terrible that darkness will be!  24 No one can serve two masters.  Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be loyal to the one and have contempt for the other.  You cannot serve God and wealth.  33 Instead, desire first and foremost God’s kingdom and God’s righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.  34 Therefore, stop worrying about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.
