Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.
Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
