Luke 16:15-18; 17:1-4

15

And He said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.

16

The law and the prophets were until John. Since that time the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone is pressing into it.

17

And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one tittle of the law to fail.

18

Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced from her husband commits adultery.

1

Then He said to the disciples, “It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come!

2

It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

3

Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him.

4

And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.
