The Sermon on the Mount
This is the last and fourth part of the Sermon on the Mount that we’ll cover here in the videos about Jesus section of the site. This video talks about laying up for yourselves treasures in heaven. Previous videos on the Sermon on the Mount covered The Beatitudes, Going the Extra Mile and The Lord’s Prayer. As mentioned, the first part of this section, Jesus talks about “laying up for ourselves treasures in heaven”. To lay up for ourselves treasures in heaven, we should strive to be kind and have charity (the pure love of Christ) towards others. We should also spend time praying and studying the scriptures each day as well as serving others.
Jesus then talks about putting first the kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33). This means that we should take time each day for to remember and think about God. Instead of watching so much TV or spending a lot of time on our favorite social network, we can spend more time studying the scriptures and serving others, or spending quality time with those we love - especially our own families.

More About this Video:
The Sermon on the Mount comprises Matthew 5-7. As mentioned on a previous video page, when Jesus came to the Americas after his resurrection, he also shared the Sermon on the Mount with the ancient inhabitants of the Americas. This is found in 3 Nephi 12-14 of the Book of Mormon. To order a free Book of Mormon, fill out the form to the right.
Next, in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus teaches us that we shouldn’t judge others. He declares that the judgment we use to judge others will be used by God to judge us (Matthew 7:1-2). For example, if someone does something that appears wrong in our eyes, and we judge them (we don’t give them the benefit of the doubt before knowing all the circumstances), God won’t give us the benefit of the doubt either when we are judged at His judgment bar. As it says at the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount, if we have mercy for others, we will obtain mercy from God. If we all strive to have more mercy, the world will be a better place. There are many more concepts taught in this section of the Sermon on the Mount, be sure and watch the video (above) to learn more.
