Matthew 6: 25-34
Why do we Worry?. The previous passage warned us how possessions can divide our mind so that they control our direction in life. In so doing, they capture our hearts, and then control our will and aspirations.

Matthew 6:19-24
Getting our Hearts Centered On What Is Important. We all need various kinds of possessions in order to live, such as food, housing, transportation, clothing, and such. Jesus is not condemning personal possessions; rather, He is challenging the focus of our hearts.

Matthew 5: 31-32
Marriage is Sacred and Binding. We live in an age of easy divorce and to such a point that we have in the United States what is called "no-fault" divorce, so you can end the marriage without stating a reason!

Matthew 5: 27-30
Lust is Adultery! Jesus cuts right to the root, the heart of the problem with most marriages. Instead of coming out and saying divorce is sin and wrong (which He does later in v. 31), He tells us to be watchful for what leads up to it, trying to save us the strife, confusion, the broke...
