19 「不要為自己在地上積蓄財寶；地上有蟲子咬，能銹壞，也有賊挖洞來偷。 20 要在天上積蓄財寶；天上沒有蟲子咬，不會銹壞，也沒有賊挖洞來偷。 21 因為你的財寶在哪裏，你的心也在哪裏。」 22 「眼睛是身體的燈。你的眼睛若明亮，全身就光明； 23 你的眼睛若昏花，全身就黑暗。你裏面的光若黑暗了，那黑暗是何等大呢！」 24 「一個人不能服侍兩個主；他不是恨這個愛那個，就是重這個輕那個。你們不能又服侍上帝，又服侍瑪門。」

Matthew 6:19-24 (NASB)
19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; 21 for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
22 “The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.

Lord God, eternal and almighty Father, we acknowledge before Your holy majesty that we are poor sinners, conceived and born in guilt and in corruption.

Have compassion on us, most gracious God, Father of mercies, for the sake of Your Son Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
If you sincerely repent of your sins, and believe in the Lord Jesus, then I, in His name, pronounce and affirm that your sins are forgiven, not only on earth, but also in heaven. Amen.
