24 No man can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one,
and love the other: or he will sustain the one, and despise the
other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
25 Therefore I say to you, be not solicitous for your life, what
you shall eat, nor for your body, what you shall put on. Is not
the life more than the meat: and the body more than the raiment?
26 Behold the birds of the air, for they neither sow, nor do they
reap, nor gather into barns: and your heavenly Father feedeth
them. Are not you of much more value than they?
27 And which of you by taking thought, can add to his stature
by one cubit?
28 And for raiment why are you solicitous? Consider the lilies
of the field, how they grow: they labour not, neither do they
29 But I say to you, that not even Solomon in all his glory was
arrayed as one of these.
30 And if the grass of the field, which is to day, and to morrow
is cast into the oven, God doth so clothe: how much more you,
O ye of little faith?
31 Be not solicitous therefore, saying, What shall we eat: or
what shall we drink, or wherewith shall we be clothed?
32 For after all these things do the heathens seek. For your Father
knoweth that you have need of all these things.
33 Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and his justice,
and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Be not therefore solicitous for to morrow; for the morrow will be solicitous for itself. Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof.
