Do Not Judge Others

7"Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.G2919G3361G3363G2919G3363G2919 2For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged.G1722G3739G1063G2917G2919G2919G2532G1722G3739G3358G3354G488G5213G488 3"And why worry about a speck in your friend's eye when you have a log in your own?G1161G5101G991G2595G1722G4675G80G3788G1161G2657G3756G1385G1722G4674G3788 4How can you think of saying to your friend, `Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,' when you can't see past the log in your own eye?G2228G4459G2046G4675G80G863G1544G2595G575G4675G3788G2532G2400G1385G1722G4675G3788 5Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend's eye.G5273G4412G1544G1385G1537G4675G3788G2532G5119G1227G1544G2595G1537G4675G80G3788 6"Don't waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don't throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you.G1325G3361G3588G40G2965G3366G906G5216G3135G1715G5519G3379G2662G846G1722G846G4228G2532G4762G4486G5209

Effective Prayer

7"Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.G154G2532G1325G5213G2212G2532G2147G2925G2532G455G5213 8For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.G1063G3956G154G2983G2532G2212G2147G2532G2925G455 9"You parents—if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead?G2228G5101G444G2076G1537G5216G3739G1437G846G5207G154G740G3361G1929G846G3037 10Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not!G2532G1437G154G2486G3361G1929G846G3789 11So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.G1487G5210G3767G5607G4190G1492G1325G18G1390G5216G5043G4214G3123G5216G3962G3588G1722G3772G1325G18G154G846

The Golden Rule

12"Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.G3767G3956G302G3745G2309G2443G444G4160G5213G4160G5210G2532G3779G846G1063G3778G2076G3551G2532G4396

The Narrow Gate

13"You can enter God's Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way.G1525G1223G4728G4439G3754G4116G4439G2532G2149G3598G520G1519G684G2532G4183G1526G3588G1525G1223G846 14But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.G3754G4728G4439G2532G2346G3598G3588G520G1519G2222G2532G3641G1526G2147G846

The Tree and Its Fruit

15"Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.G1161G4337G575G5578G3748G2064G4314G5209G1722G4263G1742G1161G2081G1526G727G3074 16You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?G1921G846G575G846G2590G3385G4816G4718G575G173G2228G4810G575G5146 17A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit.G3779G3956G18G1186G4160G2570G2590G1161G4550G1186G4160G4190G2590 18A good tree can't produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can't produce good fruit.G18G1186G3756G1410G4160G4190G2590G3761G4550G1186G4160G2570G2590 19So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire.G3956G1186G4160G3361G4160G2570G2590G1581G2532G906G1519G4442 20Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.G686G575G846G2590G1921G846

True Disciples

21"Not everyone who calls out to me, `Lord! Lord!' will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter.G3756G3956G3004G3427G2962G2962G1525G1519G932G3772G235G4160G2307G3450G3962G1722G3772 22On judgment day many will say to me, `Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.'G4183G2046G3427G1722G1565G2250G2962G2962G4395G3756G4395G4674G3686G2532G4674G3686G1544G1140G2532G4674G3686G4160G4183G1411 23But I will reply, `I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God's laws.'G2532G5119G3670G846G3754G3763G1097G5209G672G575G1700G2038G458

Building on a Solid Foundation

24"Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.G3767G3956G3748G191G5128G3056G3450G2532G4160G846G3666G846G5429G435G3748G3618G846G3614G1909G4073 25Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won't collapse because it is built on bedrock.G2532G1028G2597G2532G4215G2064G2532G417G4154G2532G4363G1565G3614G2532G4098G3756G1063G2311G1909G4073 26But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn't obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand.G2532G3956G191G5128G3056G3450G2532G4160G846G3361G3666G3474G435G3748G3618G846G3614G1909G285 27When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash."G2532G1028G2597G2532G4215G2064G2532G417G4154G2532G4350G1565G3614G2532G4098G2532G3173G2258G4431G846 28When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching,G2532G1096G3753G2424G4931G5128G3056G3793G1605G1909G846G1322 29for he taught with real authority—quite unlike their teachers of religious law.G1063G1321G2258G846G5613G2192G1849G2532G3756G5613G1122
