1 Then Jesus was led by the spirit into the desert, to be tempted by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, He was hungry. 3 The tempter came to Him and said, “If You are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” 4 But he answered, "It is written, 'Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.' " 5 Then the devil took him to the Holy City and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6 “If You are the Son of God,” he said, “throw Yourself down. For it is written: ‘He will command His angels concerning You, and they will lift You up in their hands, so that You will not strike Your foot against a stone.’” 7 Jesus replied, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’” 8 Again the devil took him to a very high mountain, and he showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor, 9 “All this I will give You,” he said, “if You will fall down and worship me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, "Go away, Satan. For it is written, 'You are to worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'" 11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and waited on him.

Matthew 6:24-34

24 No one can serve two masters: Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. 25 Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air: They do not sow or reap or gather into barns—and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his lifespan? 28 And why do you worry about clothes? Consider how the lilies of the field grow: They do not labor or spin. 29 But I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was arrayed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32 For the pagans pursue all these things, and your Heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.

She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her to help me!” 41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord replied, “you are worried and upset about many things. 42 but only one thing is needed. And Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her."
