Wis 1: 1-7

Ps 138: 1-3, 4-6, 7-8, 9-10

LK 17:1-6


Jesus wants to tell us that if we are going to be cause for anyone to sin, it is a serious issue. He goes even to the extent of telling us that it is better for such a person who might cause a scandal, to tie a millstone on his neck and get drown in the sea.  We need to be careful that our actions and words should be such that it nurtures life and not cause any harm or occasion for others to sin. Sometimes we think that it is my life and I have the freedom to do what I want and I just don’t care what others should think about it. Jesus wants to tell us that the use of our freedom and will should not cause any difficulty or create occasion for others to sin. For, sometimes even if it is lawful for us to use or have certain things, we should abstain from such things. For example consuming a little bit of hot drink may not have problem in itself. But our doing so in some place and company may cause others to develop a bad habit and that we may be able to stop it at one dose or two, but the other who might start consuming it may not be able to stop it at one or two doses as we might do.


Jesus also wants to tell us that we need to be willing to forgive those who offend us even if they come and ask for forgiveness seven times a day for the same wrong repeated every time. In Mt. 18: 22 Jesus would tell us that we should forgive not just seven times but seven times seventy-unlimited times.


When Jesus speaks about not becoming a scandal and the need to forgive unlimited times the disciples ask the Lord to strengthen their faith. For they knew that it was not easy to forgive unlimited times and live a life which is not scandal for others, so they had asked the lord to strengthen their faith. But the Lord wants to assure us that even if our faith is as equal to that of the size of a mustard seed, it is good enough, to follow his instructions and commandments.
