17One day Jesus said to his disciples, "There will always be temptations to sin, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting!G1161G2036G4314G3101G2076G418G3361G4625G2064G1161G3759G1223G3739G2064 2It would be better to be thrown into the sea with a millstone hung around your neck than to cause one of these little ones to fall into sin.G3081G846G1487G3458G3684G4029G4012G846G5137G2532G4496G1519G2281G2228G2443G4624G1520G5130G3398 3So watch yourselves! "If another believer sins, rebuke that person; then if there is repentance, forgive.G4337G1438G1161G1437G4675G80G264G1519G4571G2008G846G2532G1437G3340G863G846 4Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive."G2532G1437G264G1519G4571G2034G2250G2532G2034G2250G1994G1909G4571G3004G3340G863G846 5The apostles said to the Lord, "Show us how to increase our faith."G2532G652G2036G2962G4369G2254G4102 6The Lord answered, "If you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, 'May you be uprooted and thrown into the sea,' and it would obey you!G1161G2962G2036G1487G2192G4102G5613G2848G4615G302G3004G5026G4807G1610G2532G5452G1722G2281G2532G302G5219G5213 7"When a servant comes in from plowing or taking care of sheep, does his master say, 'Come in and eat with me'?G1161G5101G1537G5216G2192G1401G722G2228G4165G2046G3739G2112G1525G1537G68G3928G377 8No, he says, 'Prepare my meal, put on your apron, and serve me while I eat. Then you can eat later.'G235G3780G2046G846G2090G5101G1172G2532G4024G1247G3427G2193G5315G2532G4095G2532G3326G5023G4771G5315G2532G4095 9And does the master thank the servant for doing what he was told to do? Of course not.G3361G2192G5485G1565G1401G3754G4160G1299G846G1380G3756 10In the same way, when you obey me you should say, 'We are unworthy servants who have simply done our duty.'"G3779G2532G5210G3752G4160G3956G1299G5213G3004G3754G2070G888G1401G3754G4160G3739G3784G4160 11As Jesus continued on toward Jerusalem, he reached the border between Galilee and Samaria.G2532G1096G1722G846G4198G1519G2419G2532G846G1330G1223G3319G4540G2532G1056 12As he entered a village there, ten lepers stood at a distance,G2532G846G1525G1519G5100G2968G528G846G1176G435G3015G3739G2476G4207 13crying out, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!"G2532G846G142G5456G3004G2424G1988G1653G2248 14He looked at them and said, "Go show yourselves to the priests." And as they went, they were cleansed of their leprosy.G2532G1492G2036G846G4198G1925G1438G2409G2532G1096G846G5217G1722G2511 15One of them, when he saw that he was healed, came back to Jesus, shouting, "Praise God!"G1161G1520G1537G846G1492G3754G2390G5290G3326G3173G5456G1392G2316 16He fell to the ground at Jesus' feet, thanking him for what he had done. This man was a Samaritan.G2532G4098G1909G4383G3844G846G4228G2168G846G2168G2532G846G2258G4541 17Jesus asked, "Didn't I heal ten men? Where are the other nine?G1161G2424G611G2036G2511G3780G1176G2511G1161G4226G1767 18Has no one returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?"G2147G3756G2147G5290G1325G1391G2316G1508G3778G241 19And Jesus said to the man, "Stand up and go. Your faith has healed you."G2532G2036G846G450G4198G4675G4102G4982G4571G4982 20One day the Pharisees asked Jesus, "When will the Kingdom of God come?" Jesus replied, "The Kingdom of God can't be detected by visible signs.G1161G1905G5259G5330G4219G932G2316G2064G611G846G2532G2036G932G2316G2064G3756G3326G3907 21You won't be able to say, 'Here it is!' or 'It's over there!' For the Kingdom of God is already among you."G3761G2046G2400G5602G2228G2400G1563G1063G2400G932G2316G2076G1787G5216 22Then he said to his disciples, "The time is coming when you will long to see the day when the Son of Man returns, but you won't see it.G1161G2036G4314G3101G2250G2064G3753G1937G1492G3391G2250G5207G444G2532G3700G3756G3700 23People will tell you, 'Look, there is the Son of Man,' or 'Here he is,' but don't go out and follow them.G2532G2046G5213G2400G5602G2228G2400G1563G565G3361G565G3366G1377 24For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other, so it will be on the day when the Son of Man comes.G1063G5618G796G797G1537G5259G3772G2989G1519G5259G3772G3779G2532G5207G444G2071G1722G846G2250 25But first the Son of Man must suffer terribly and be rejected by this generation.G1161G4412G1163G846G3958G4183G2532G593G575G5026G1074 26"When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah's day.G2532G2531G1096G1722G2250G3575G3779G2071G2532G1722G2250G5207G444 27In those days, the people enjoyed banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat and the flood came and destroyed them all.G2068G4095G1060G1547G891G2250G3739G3575G1525G1519G2787G2532G2627G2064G2532G622G537 28"And the world will be as it was in the days of Lot. People went about their daily business—eating and drinking, buying and selling, farming and building—G3668G2532G5613G1096G1722G2250G3091G2068G4095G59G4453G5452G3618 29until the morning Lot left Sodom. Then fire and burning sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.G3739G1161G2250G3091G1831G575G4670G1026G4442G2532G2303G575G3772G2532G622G537 30Yes, it will be 'business as usual' right up to the day when the Son of Man is revealed.G2596G5024G2071G3739G2250G5207G444G601 31On that day a person out on the deck of a roof must not go down into the house to pack. A person out in the field must not return home.G1722G1565G2250G3739G2071G1909G1430G2532G846G4632G1722G3614G2597G3361G2597G142G846G142G2532G1722G68G1994G3668G3361G1994G1519G3694 32Remember what happened to Lot's wife!G3421G3091G1135 33If you cling to your life, you will lose it, and if you let your life go, you will save it.G3739G1437G2212G4982G846G5590G622G846G2532G3739G1437G622G846G2225G846 34That night two people will be asleep in one bed; one will be taken, the other left.G3004G5213G5026G3571G2071G1417G1909G3391G2825G1520G3880G2532G2087G863 35Two women will be grinding flour together at the mill; one will be taken, the other left."G1417G2071G229G846G1909G3391G3880G2532G2087G863 36G1417G2071G1722G68G1520G3880G2532G2087G863 37"Where will this happen, Lord?" the disciples asked. Jesus replied, "Just as the gathering of vultures shows there is a carcass nearby, so these signs indicate that the end is near."G2532G611G3004G846G4226G2962G1161G2036G846G3699G4983G1563G4863G105G4863
