(If a brother comes back to you seven times a day and says, “I am sorry”, you must forgive him.
Jesus said to his disciples,
“Obstacles are sure to come,
but alas for the one who provides them!
It would be better for him
to be thrown into the sea
with a millstone put round his neck
than that he should lead astray
a single one of this little ones.
“If your brother does something wrong,
reprove him and,
if he is sorry,
And if he wrongs you seven times a day
and seven times comes back to you and says,
‘I am sorry,’
you must forgive him.
The apostles said to the Lord,
‘Increase our faith.’
The Lord replied,
“Were your faith the size of a mustard seed
you could say to this mulberry tree,
‘Be uprooted and
planted in the sea,’
and it would obey you.”
