12 Revised Standard Version Passage

22And he said to his disciples, "Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat, nor about your body, what you shall put on.Care and Anxiety Lk.12.22-34 (Judaea) | Mt.6.25-34
23For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. 
24Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! 
25And which of you by being anxious can add a cubit to his span of life Or: to his stature? 
26If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest? 
27Consider the lilies, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin Other ancient authorities read: Consider the lilies; they neither spin nor weave; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 
28But if God so clothes the grass which is alive in the field today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O men of little faith! 
29And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be of anxious mind. 
30For all the nations of the world seek these things; and your Father knows that you need them. 
31Instead, seek his Other ancient authorities read: God's kingdom, and these things shall be yours as well. 
32"Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 
33Sell your possessions, and give alms; provide yourselves with purses that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. 
34For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
