1Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come.

3So watch yourselves. “If your brother or sister The Greek word for brother or sister (adelphos) refers here to a fellow disciple, whether man or woman. sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them.
4Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying ‘I repent,’ you must forgive them.”
5The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”
