We will learn that:
  • Offenses will certainly come but woe to the one through whom they come! 
  • Because temptation and sin are facts of life, the Lord tells us to be on our guard.
  • Forgiving others is so important that God won't forgive us unless we forgive others. But interestingly enough our duty to forgive is bound together with whether we have been forgiven ourselves. Not only do hurt people hurt people, but forgiven people forgive people.
  • Jesus expects us to be thankful.



 Luke 17:1–4 (NKJV) 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.”
