Bible: Matthew 18:6-14

18:6But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, 1  it would be better for him to have a huge millstone 2  hung around his neck and to be drowned in the open sea. 3  18:7 Woe to the world because of stumbling blocks! It 4  is necessary that stumbling blocks come, but woe to the person through whom they come. 18:8 If 5  your hand or your foot causes you to sin, 6  cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life crippled or lame than to have 7  two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire. 18:9 And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye than to have 8  two eyes and be thrown into fiery hell. 9 

The Parable of the Lost Sheep

18:10See that you do not disdain one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven. 18:11 [[EMPTY]] 10  18:12 What do you think? If someone 11  owns a hundred 12  sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go look for the one that went astray? 13  18:13 And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, 14  he will rejoice more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray. 18:14 In the same way, your Father in heaven is not willing that one of these little ones be lost.
