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.
