Luke 12:26-36 CSB

26 If then you're not able to do even a little thing, why worry about the rest?
27 "Consider how the wildflowers grow: they don't labor or spin thread. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these!
28 If that's how God clothes the grass, which is in the field today and is thrown into the furnace tomorrow, how much more will He do for you-you of little faith?
29 Don't keep striving for what you should eat and what you should drink, and don't be anxious.
30 For the Gentile world eagerly seeks all these things, and your Father knows that you need them.
31 "But seek His kingdom, and these things will be provided for you.
32 Don't be afraid, little flock, because your Father delights to give you the kingdom.
33 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Make money-bags for yourselves that won't grow old, an inexhaustible treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.
34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
