Luke 10:38-42

38 But it happened while they were also traveling, he entered into a certain village, and a certain woman, Martha by name, accepted him into her house. 39 And she was a sister to one called Mary, who also sat beside the feet of Jesus and was hearing his word. 40 But Martha was being distracted concerning much service to them, and having stood by him, she said, Lord, do you not care that my sister left me to serve alone? Therefore speak to her in order that she may jointly help me.
41 But Jesus answered and said to her, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and disturbed concerning many things, 42 but there is need of one thing, and Mary has chosen the good part, which will not be taken away from her.

{Luk 11:1-13:9; Probably Judea; no parallel. This is similar teaching to different crowd.}

Exodus 20:3

3 You will have no other gods before me.

Luke 12:22-34

22 Now he said to his disciples, Because of this, I am saying to you, Do not be anxious for your life, what you might eat; nor yet what you might clothe your body with. 23 The life you have is more-than the nourishment, and the body is more-than the clothing. 24 Consider the ravens, that they do not sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor a barn, and God nourishes them. How much more-value do you carry than the birds! 25 But which one out of you, by being anxious, is able to add one cubit upon his stature? 26 Therefore, if you are not able to add a little thing, why are you anxious concerning the rest? 27 Consider the lilies, somehow they grow. They do not labor nor do they spin; yet I say to you, Even Solomon in all his glory, was not dressed like one of these. 28 But if God so dresses-up the grass in the field, which today is here and the next-day is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, You of small faith? 29 And do not seek what you might eat or what you might drink, and do not be in anxious suspense. 30 For the nations of the world are seeking after all these things, but your Father knows that you have need of these things. 31 However, seek the kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you.
32 Do not fear, little flock, because your Father was delighted to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell your possessions and give as charity; make*\'b0 for yourselves money-bags which do not become-obsolete, an unfailing treasure in the heavens, where no thief draws near, nor moth corrupts. 34 For where your treasure is, your heart will be there also.

1 Timothy 3:5

5 (but if anyone does not know how to govern his own house, how will he be caring for the congregation of God?;)

Luke 12:34

34 For where your treasure is, your heart will be there also.

Romans 12:2

2 And not to fashion yourselves to this age, but be transfigured by the renewal of your mind, that you may be proving in you what is the will of God: the good and acceptable and mature.

Matthew 6:33

33 But first seek the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
