Giving to the Poor and Prayer

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:1 -

“Beware of doing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them; otherwise you have no reward with your Father who is in heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:2 -

“Therefore, when you [fn]give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be glorified by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:3 - “But when you [fn]give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:4 - so that your [fn]giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.
(Luk 11:2–4 )
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:5 -

“And when you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners [fn]so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:6 - “But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:7 -

“And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:8 - “Therefore, do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:9 -

“Pray, then, in this way:

‘Our Father who is in heaven,

Hallowed be Your name.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:10 -

‘Your kingdom come.

Your will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:11 -

‘Give us this day [fn]our daily bread.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:12 -

‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from [fn]the evil one. [fn][For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’]

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:14 -

“For if you forgive [fn]others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:15 - “But if you do not forgive [fn]others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.


Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:16 -

“Now whenever you fast, do not put on a gloomy face as the hypocrites do, for they [fn]neglect their appearance so that they will be noticed by men when they are fasting. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:17 - “But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:18 - so that your fasting will not be noticed by men, but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

Treasures in Heaven

(Luk 12:33, 34 )
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:19 -

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:20 - “But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal;
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:21 - for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
(Luk 11:34–36 )
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:22 -

“The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is [fn]clear, your whole body will be full of light.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:23 - “But if your eye is [fn]bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:24 -

“No one can [fn]serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot [fn]serve God and [fn]wealth.

Do Not Worry

(Luk 12:22–31 )
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:25 -

“For this reason I say to you, [fn]do not be worried about your [fn]life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:26 - “Look at the birds of the [fn]air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:27 - “And who of you by being worried can add a single [fn]cubit to his [fn]life span?
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:28 - “And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin,
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:29 - yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:30 - “But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith!
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:31 - “Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:32 - “For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:33 - “But [fn]seek first [fn]His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be [fn]added to you.
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 6:34 -

“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. [fn]Each day has enough trouble of its own.
