Apr. 29. Some Rules to Live by

Lk. 17:1-10

When Jesus had concluded His remarks to the Pharisees, He turned to the disciples and began to instruct them. He stressed the importance of avoiding offences toward weaker brothers.

Jesus also pointed out the necessity of correcting sins. He taught that there should be unlimited forgiveness toward a brother who repents and asks for forgiveness.

Those who follow Jesus are servants and are expected to perform to the best of their abilities. A person who is more capable and does more than another is no better in God’s sight, because no one can do enough good works to deserve the grace of God. He has only done his duty.
