Increase Our Faith
5 (A)The apostles said to the Lord, (B)“Increase our faith!” 6 And the Lord said, (C)“If you had faith like (D)a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this (E)mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.
7 “Will any one of you who has a servant[a] plowing or keeping sheep say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Come at once and recline at table’? 8 Will he not rather say to him, ‘Prepare supper for me, and (F)dress properly,[b] and serve me while I eat and drink, and afterward you will eat and drink’? 9 Does he thank the servant because he did what was commanded? 10 So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘We are (G)unworthy servants;[c] we have only done what was our duty.’”Read full chapter
