Matthew 10:34–42

34 Don’t assume that I came to bring peace on the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. t 35 For I came to turn

a man against his father,

a daughter against her mother,

a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;

36 and a man’s enemies will be

the members of his household. u v

37 The person who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; w the person who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38 And whoever doesn’t take up his cross and follow x Me is not worthy of Me. 39 Anyone finding y his life will lose it, z and anyone losing a his life because of Me will find it. b

A Cup of Cold Water

40 “The one who welcomes you welcomes Me, c and the one who welcomes Me welcomes Him who sent Me. d 41 Anyone who e welcomes a prophet f because he is a prophet g will receive a prophet’s reward. And anyone who h welcomes a righteous person because he’s righteous i will receive a righteous person’s reward. 42 And whoever gives j just a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is a disciple k l—I assure you: He will never lose his reward!”
