    Verse 33 shows that we need to put Jehovah God first in our lives. Material things have their place, but not first place.

  • A disciple
    With regard to one of the main points in this part of the Sermon; it is the hidden man of the heart that we bring before God with our prayers, fastings, and acts of mercy toward others. For this reason I think that a Church Ritual which everyone is compelled to perform, because it was a tradition started long ago, misses entirely what the Lord teaches us. Our religion is not for appearance to men.
