THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO
g. Relationships in the Kingdom
2 And He called a little child to Him and stood him in their midst
4 He therefore who will ahumble himself like this little child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of the heavens.
5 And whoever receives one such little child 1because of My name, receives Me;
7 Woe to the world because of astumbling blocks! For it is necessary for stumbling blocks to come, but woe to that man through whom the stumbling block comes.
8 If your ahand or your foot stumbles you, 1cut it off and cast it from you; it is better for you to enter into life maimed or lame than to have two hands or two feet and be cast into the eternal bfire.
10 See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their aangels in the heavens continually behold the face of My Father who is in the heavens.
11 1For the Son of Man has come to save that which is lost.
13 And if it so happens that he finds it, truly I say to you that he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine which have not gone astray.
16 But if he does not hear you, take with you one or two more, that by the mouth of two or three awitnesses every word may be established.
22 Jesus said to him, I do not say to you, Up to seven times, but, Up to seventy times seven.
24 And when he began to settle them, one who owed him 1ten thousand talents was brought to him.
26 Then the slave fell down and worshipped him, saying, Be patient with me and I will repay you all.
27 And the master of that slave was moved with compassion and released him and 1forgave him the loan.
28 But that slave went out and found one of his fellow slaves who owed him a 1hundred denarii, and he took hold of him and began to choke him, saying, Repay me what you owe.
29 Then his fellow slave fell down and begged him, saying, Be patient with me and I will repay you.
30 But he would not; instead, he went away and threw him into prison until he would repay what was owed.
31 Then his fellow slaves, seeing what had taken place, were greatly 1grieved and came and explained fully to their master all that had taken place.
32 Then his master called him to him and said to him, aEvil slave, all that debt I forgave you, because you begged me.
