And he said to his disciples, "For this [reason] I tell you, do not be anxious for [your]a life, what you will eat, or for [your]b body, what you will wear.
For life is more than food, and the body [more than] clothing.
Consider the ravens, that they neither sow nor reap; to them there is neither storeroom nor barn, and God feeds them. How much more are you worth than the birds?
And which of you [by]c being anxious is able to add an hourd to his life span?
If then you are not even able [to do] a very little thing, why are you anxious about the rest?
Consider the lilies, how they grow: they do not toil or spin, but I say to you, not even Solomon in all his glory was dressed like one of these.
But if God clothes the grass in the field in this way, [although it]e is [here] today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more [will he do so for]f you, you of little faith?
And you, do not consider what you will eat and what you will drink, and do not be anxious.
For all the nations of the world seek after these [things], and your Father knows that you need these [things].
But seek his kingdom and these [things] will be added to you.
"Do not be afraid, little flock, because your Father is well pleased to give you the kingdom.
Sell your possessions and give charitable gifts. Make for yourselves money bags that do not wear out, an inexhaustible treasure in heaveng where thief does not approach or moth destroy.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
