Matthew 6

Matthew 6

King James Version (KJV)

Matthew 6

 1Take 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.
 2Therefore 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.
 3But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
 4That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
 5And 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.
 6But 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.
 7But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
 8Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
 9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
 10Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
 11Give us this day our daily bread.
 12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
 13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
 14For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
 15But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
 16Moreover 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.
 17But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
 18That 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.
 19Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
 20But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
 21For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
 22The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
 23But 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!
 24No 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.
 25Therefore 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?
 26Behold 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?
 27Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
 28And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
 29And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
 30Wherefore, 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?
 31Therefore 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.
 33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
 34Take 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.

James Chapter 1

Hey guys! ( this includes girls! haha) Sorry, I haven't posted anymore recipes! Kinda at a lack of inspiration! Anyways, I will be posting more recipes in the near future, but today I really felt impressed by God to share the following chapter ( in the BIBLE ) with you. I will highlight the verses that stand out to me the most.

James 1

 1James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
 2My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
 3Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
 4But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
 5If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
 6But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
 7For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
 8A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
 9Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:
 10But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
 11For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
 12Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
 13Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
 14But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
 15Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
 16Do not err, my beloved brethren.
 17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
 18Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
 19Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
 20For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
 21Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
 22But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
 23For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
 24For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
 25But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
 26If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.
 27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Proverb of the day- Proverbs 5

Proverbs 5

 1My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
 2That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
 3For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
 4But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.
 5Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
 6Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
 7Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
 8Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
 9Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:
 10Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;
 11And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
 12And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
 13And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
 14I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.
 15Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.
 16Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets.
 17Let them be only thine own, and not strangers' with thee.
 18Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
 19Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.
 20And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?
 21For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
 22His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.
 23He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
