12 And forgive us our debts,

13 And do not bring us intoA temptation,b

HOW TO FAST

16 “Whenever you fast, don’t be gloomy like the hypocrites. For they make their faces unattractiveD,e so that their fasting is obvious to people. Truly I tell you, they have their reward. 17 But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face,f 18 so that your fasting isn’t obvious to others but to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.E

GOD AND POSSESSIONS

19 “Don’t store up for yourselves treasuresF on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal.g 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven,h where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves don’t 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. If your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. So if the light within you is darkness, how deep is that darkness!i

24 “No one can serve two masters, since either he will hate one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.j
