Are you a Christian?
6:2 Therefore when you do merciful deeds, don`t sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may get glory from men. Most assuredly, I tell you, they have received their reward.
6:4 so that your merciful deeds may be in secret, then your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
6:5 When you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Most assuredly, I tell you, they have received their reward.
6:7 In praying, don`t use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speaking.
6:8 Therefore don`t be like them, for your Father knows what things you need, before you ask him.
6:9 Pray like this. `Our Father, who is in heaven, may your name be kept holy.
6:10 May your kingdom come. May your will be done, as in heaven, so on earth.
6:12 Forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors.
6:13 Bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever. Amen.`
6:14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
6:15 But if you don`t forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
6:16 Moreover when you fast, don`t be, as the hypocrites, with sad faces. For they disfigure their faces, that they may be seen by men to be fasting. Most assuredly I tell you, they have received their reward.
6:18 that you are not seen by men to be fasting, but by your Father who is in secret, and your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you.
6:20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consume, and where thieves don`t break through and steal;
6:21 for where your treasure is, your heart will be there also.
6:25 Therefore, I tell you, don`t be anxious for your life, what you will eat, or what you will drink; nor yet for your body, what you will put on. Isn`t life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
6:26 See the birds of the sky, that they don`t sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns. Your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren`t you of much more value than they?
6:29 yet I tell you that even Solomon in all his glory was not dressed like one of these.
6:31 Therefore don`t be anxious, saying, `What will we eat?`, `What will we drink?` or, `With what will we be clothed?`
6:32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
6:33 But seek first God`s Kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things will be added to you.
6:34 Therefore don`t be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Each day`s own evil is sufficient.
