You don't need to hide away treasures for yourselves on earth," explained Jesus. "These things are so easily lost, or stolen, or rained. But if your treasure is in heaven, nothing can take it from you! And remember, the place where you keep your treasure is the same place where you keep your heart."
Jesus watched as birds flew by, singing sweetly in the air. "You don't need to worry, or ask what will I eat, what will I wear? Your life is more important than food and clothes." Jesus pointed up. "See those birds? They don't plant gardens or sew clothes. Yet God the Father gives them what they need. Remember you're more precious to God than birds. He will take good care of you!"
"Don't look down upon others," said Jesus. "Don't point your finger and blame them, or say mean things about them—unless you want to be treated like that! It's like telling someone he has a speck of sawdust in his eye when you have a great big board sticking in yours. Take care of your own problem before you try to fix someone else's problems."
"Ask," said Jesus, "and you will receive. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened for you! If a child asks his parents for a piece of bread, will his parents give him a rock to eat? Of course not! So think about how much more your Father in heaven loves you. Think about how He longs to give you good gifts."
