Freedom from Anxiety

Matthew 6:25-34 Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a…

Treasure in Heaven

Matthew 6:19-24 Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 22 The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, 23 but if your eye is bad, your whole…

A Different Prayer

Matthew 6:9-15 Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. 10 Your kingdom come,     your will be done,        on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread, 12 and forgive us our debts,        as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation,        but deliver us from evil. 14 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, 15 but if you…

Longing for Home

Psalm 84 How lovely is your dwelling place,     O Lord of hosts! 2 My soul longs, yes, faints     for the courts of the Lord; my heart and flesh sing for joy     to the living God. 3 Even the sparrow finds a home,     and the swallow a nest for herself,     where she may lay her young, at your altars, O Lord of hosts,     my King and my God. 4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house,     ever singing your praise! Selah 5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you,     in whose heart are the highways…

Remember God’s Goodness

Psalm 106 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,     for his steadfast love endures forever! 2 Who can utter the mighty deeds of the Lord,     or declare all his praise? 3 Blessed are they who observe justice,     who do righteousness at all times! 4 Remember me, O Lord, when you show favor to your people;     help me when you save them, 5 that I may look upon the prosperity of your chosen ones,     that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation,     that I may glory…

Great Is The Lord

Psalm 96 1 Sing to the Lord a new song;       Sing to the Lord, all the earth. 2 Sing to the Lord, bless His name;       Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day. 3 Tell of His glory among the nations,       His wonderful deeds among all the peoples. 4 For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised;       He is to be feared above all gods. 5 For all the gods of the peoples are idols,       But the Lord made the heavens. 6 Splendor and…

A New Audience

Matthew 6:1-8; 16-18 Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. 2 Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand…

Love Your Enemies

Matthew 5:43-48 You have heard that it was said, “You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.” 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the…

Radical Responses

Matthew 5:33-42 Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.’ 34 But I say to you, Do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 And do not take an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or…

Pursuing Purity

Matthew 5:27-32 You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it…
