Faith

For today's Gospel

Lk 17:1-6

 

17 Jesus said to his disciples:


There will always be something that causes people to sin. But anyone who causes them to sin is in for trouble. A person who causes even one of my little followers to sin2 would be better off thrown into the ocean with a heavy stone tied around their neck. 3 So be careful what you do.

Correct any followers[a] of mine who sin, and forgive the ones who say they are sorry. 4 Even if one of them mistreats you seven times in one day and says, “I am sorry,” you should still forgive that person.


5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Make our faith stronger!”

6 Jesus replied:


If you had faith no bigger than a tiny mustard seed, you could tell this mulberry tree to pull itself up, roots and all, and to plant itself in the ocean. And it would!

 

I got the readings from http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke+17&version=CEV.

 

The reflection for today is from my little brother.   In his own words --> "Tungkol sa pagpapatawad.  Kapag may kakilalang nagkasala, sabihan na mali siya.  Kapag may nagsabi ng sorry, dapat patawarin.   Magpatawad lang ng magpatawad paulit-ulit kahit ilang beses. Ang mga nagiging dahilan ng pagkakasala, dapat sirain at alisin sa buhay.  Ang hindi ko makakalimutan ay yung mustard seed.  Ang faith natin dapat parang ganun.  Nagsisimula sa maliit, pero tuluy-tuloy ang pag-laki."



He also has reflection tomorrow, but I will post it tomorrow.
