Teachings about Forgiveness and Faith
1 One day Jesus said to his disciples, "There will always be temptations to sin, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting!2 It 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.3 So watch yourselves!
  "If another believer* sins, rebuke that person; then if there is repentance, forgive.4 Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive."
  5 The apostles said to the Lord, "Show us how to increase our faith."
  6 The 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!
  7 "When a servant comes in from plowing or taking care of sheep, does his master say, 'Come in and eat with me'?8 No, he says, 'Prepare my meal, put on your apron, and serve me while I eat. Then you can eat later.'9 And does the master thank the servant for doing what he was told to do? Of course not.10 In the same way, when you obey me you should say, 'We are unworthy servants who have simply done our duty.'"

Ten Healed of Leprosy
11 As Jesus continued on toward Jerusalem, he reached the border between Galilee and Samaria.12 As he entered a village there, ten lepers stood at a distance,13 crying out, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!"
  14 He looked at them and said, "Go show yourselves to the priests."* And as they went, they were cleansed of their leprosy.
  15 One of them, when he saw that he was healed, came back to Jesus, shouting, "Praise God!"16 He fell to the ground at Jesus' feet, thanking him for what he had done. This man was a Samaritan.
  17 Jesus asked, "Didn't I heal ten men? Where are the other nine?18 Has no one returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?"19 And Jesus said to the man, "Stand up and go. Your faith has healed you.*"
