Matthew 6:1-34 (KJV)
[1] Take heed that ye do not your alms before men,
to be seen of them: otherwise ye have
no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

[2] Therefore when thou doest thine alms,
do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the
hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the
streets, that they may have glory of men.
Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

[3] But when thou doest alms, let not thy
left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

[4] That thine alms may be in secret: and
thy Father which seeth in secret himself
shall reward thee openly.

[5] And when thou prayest, thou shalt not
be as the hypocrites are: for they love to
pray standing in the synagogues and in the
corners of the streets, that they may be
seen of men. Verily I say unto you,
They have their reward.

[6] But thou, when thou prayest, enter into
thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door,
pray to thy Father which is in secret; and
thy Father which seeth in secret
shall reward thee openly.

[7] But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions,
as the heathen do: for they think that they
shall be heard for their much speaking.

[8] Be not ye therefore like unto them:
for your Father knoweth what things ye
have need of, before ye ask him.

[9] After this manner therefore pray ye:
Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.

[10] Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done
in earth, as it is in heaven.

[11] Give us this day our daily bread.

[12] And forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.

[13] And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil: For thine is
the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
for ever. Amen.

[14] For if ye forgive men their trespasses,
your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

[15] But if ye forgive not men their trespasses,
neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

[16] Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the
hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they
disfigure their faces, that they may appear
unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you,
They have their reward.

[17] But thou, when thou fastest, anoint
thine head, and wash thy face;

[18] That thou appear not unto men to fast,
but unto thy Father which is in secret: and
thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall
reward thee openly.

[19] Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon
earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through and steal:

[20] But lay up for yourselves treasures
in heaven, where neither moth nor rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves do not
break through nor steal:

[21] For where your treasure is, there
will your heart be also.

[22] The light of the body is the eye:
if therefore thine eye be single, thy
whole body shall be full of light.

[23] But if thine eye be evil, thy whole
body shall be full of darkness. If
therefore the light that is in thee be
darkness, how great is that darkness!

[24] No man can serve two masters: for
either he will hate the one, and love
the other; or else he will hold to the
one, and despise the other.
Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

[25] Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought
for your life, what ye shall eat, or what
ye shall drink; nor yet for your body,
what ye shall put on. Is not the life more
than meat, and the body than raiment?

[26] Behold the fowls of the air: for they
sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather
into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth
them. Are ye not much better than they?

[27] Which of you by taking thought can add
one cubit unto his stature?

[28] And why take ye thought for raiment?
Consider the lilies of the field, how they
grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

[29] And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon
in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

[30] Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass
of the field, which to day is, and to morrow
is cast into the oven, shall he not much more
clothe you, O ye of little faith?

[31] Therefore take no thought, saying, What
shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or,
Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

[32] (For after all these things do the Gentiles
seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that
ye have need of all these things.

[33] But seek ye first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness; and all these things
shall be added unto you.

[34] Take therefore no thought for the morrow:
for the morrow shall take thought for the
things of itself. Sufficient unto the
day is the evil thereof.


May God bless you immeasurably as you continue
to spread His word!
