Bible: Luke 17:1-6
Sin, Forgiveness, Faith, and Service
17:1 Jesus 1 said to his disciples, “Stumbling blocks are sure to come, but woe 2 to the one through whom they come! 17:2 It would be better for him to have a millstone 3 tied around his neck and be thrown into the sea 4 than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin. 5 17:3 Watch 6 yourselves! If 7 your brother 8 sins, rebuke him. If 9 he repents, forgive him. 17:4 Even if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times returns to you saying, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive 10 him.”
17:5 The 11 apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” 12 17:6 So 13 the Lord replied, 14 “If 15 you had faith the size of 16 a mustard seed, you could say to this black mulberry 17 tree, ‘Be pulled out by the roots and planted in the sea,’ 18 and it would obey 19 you.
