Luke 17:1-10

ESV 1 And he said to his disciples, "Temptations to sin are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come! MSG 1 He said to his disciples, "Hard trials and temptations are bound to come, but too bad for whoever brings them on! ESV 2 It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin. MSG 2 Better to wear a millstone necklace and take a swim in the deep blue sea than give even one of these dear little ones a hard time! ESV 3 Pay attention to yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him, MSG 3 "Be alert. If you see your friend going wrong, correct him. If he responds, forgive him. ESV 4 and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, saying, 'I repent,' you must forgive him." MSG 4 Even if it's personal against you and repeated seven times through the day, and seven times he says, 'I'm sorry, I won't do it again,' forgive him." ESV 5 The apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith!" MSG 5 The apostles came up and said to the Master, "Give us more faith." ESV 6 And the Lord said, "If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you. MSG 6 But the Master said, "You don't need more faith. There is no 'more' or 'less' in faith. If you have a bare kernel of faith, say the size of a poppy seed, you could say to this sycamore tree, 'Go jump in the lake,' and it would do it. ESV 7 "Will any one of you who has a servant plowing or keeping sheep say to him when he has come in from the field, 'Come at once and recline at table'? MSG 7 "Suppose one of you has a servant who comes in from plowing the field or tending the sheep. Would you take his coat, set the table, and say, 'Sit down and eat'? ESV 8 Will he not rather say to him, 'Prepare supper for me, and dress properly, and serve me while I eat and drink, and afterward you will eat and drink'? MSG 8 Wouldn't you be more likely to say, 'Prepare dinner; change your clothes and wait table for me until I've finished my coffee; then go to the kitchen and have your supper'? ESV 9 Does he thank the servant because he did what was commanded? MSG 9 Does the servant get special thanks for doing what's expected of him? ESV 10 So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, 'We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.'" MSG 10 It's the same with you. When you've done everything expected of you, be matter-of-fact and say, 'The work is done. What we were told to do, we did.'"
