Jesus teaches us about money

An EasyEnglish Story Unit (AEE) from Matthew’s Good News

Joyce Ferrie



Jesus said, “Do not save up lots of money or precious things.

Robbers may steal them.

If you think about money all the time, you will forget about God.

You will not have time to think about God.

You cannot live for God and for money.

Live for him and you will have treasure in heaven.


Do not worry about what you will eat,

God will take care of you.

He even takes care of the birds.

You are worth more than birds.

God loves you.


Do not worry about what to wear.

Look at the flowers - God dresses them.

He will make sure you have clothes to wear.



Can you make yourself live a bit longer if you worry?

Of course not.

Do not worry about tomorrow.



God knows just what you need.

He loves you and wants you to love him.”



Matthew 6:19-34.
