Sin, Forgiveness, Faith, and Service

1 And he said to his disciples, "It is impossible for causes for stumbling not to come, but woe [to him] through whom they come! 2 It would be better for him if {a millstone}a is placed around his neck and he is thrown into the sea than that he causes one of these little ones to sin. 3 "Be concerned about yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him. 4 And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times he returns to you saying, 'I repent,' you must forgive him." 5 And the apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith!" 6 So the Lord said, "If you have faith like a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you. 7 "And which of you who has a slave plowing or shepherding [sheep]b who comes in from the field will say to him, 'Come here at once [and]c recline at the table'?
