The Proper Manner of Almsgiving

Behavior and Belief
Matthew 7:15 "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.

Matthew 7:17 "Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
Matthew 7:18 "A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.

Matthew 7:23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
Build on a Firm Foundation
Matthew 7:24 "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:
Matthew 7:25 "and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
Matthew 7:26 "But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:
Matthew 7:27 "and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall."
Matthew 7:28 And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching,
Matthew 7:29 for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
Matthew 8:1 When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him.
