Wis 1:1-7 / Ps 139:1-3, 4-6, 7-8, 9-10 / Lk 17:1-6

WISDOM 1:1–7
Love justice, you who rule over the world. Think rightly of God, seek
him with simplicity of heart, for he reveals himself to those who do
not challenge him and is found by those who do not distrust him.
Crooked thinking distances you from God, and his Omnipotence, put to
the test, confounds the foolish. Wisdom does not enter the wicked nor
remain in a body that is enslaved to sin. The Holy Spirit who
instructs us shuns deceit; it keeps aloof from foolishness and is ill
at ease when injustice is done. Wisdom is a spirit, a friend to man,
and will not leave the blasphemous unpunished, because God knows his
innermost feelings, truly sees his thoughts and hears what he says.
For God's spirit has filled the whole world and he who holds together
all things, knows each word that is spoken.

LUKE 17:1-6
Jesus said to his disciples, "Scandals will necessarily come and cause
people to fall; but woe to the one who has brought it about. It would
be better for that one to be thrown into the sea with a millstone
around the neck. Truly this would be better for that person than to
cause one of these little ones to fall. "Be careful. If your brother
of fends you, rebuke him and if he is sorry, forgive him. And if he
offends you seven times in a day but says to you seven times: `I'm
sorry,' forgive him." The apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our
faith." And the Lord said, "If you have faith even the size of a
mustard seed, you may say to this tree: `Be uprooted and plant
yourself in the sea,' and it will obey you."

In today's Gospel, Jesus warns his disciples not to be the causes for
others to sin. We are to be alert and watch out ourselves lest we
engage in such activity. While we are not to judge others, we still
should not be blind when our brother or sister sins. We are called to
rebuke them. But more than that, we are to be able to forgive them
when they repent.

In order to forgive others constantly, we must pray as the disciples
did, "Increase our faith!" Then like the tiny mustard seed our faith
will grow and become stronger and then we will be able to accomplish
what seems to be impossible.
