Reading 3, 1Cor 4:15-21 : Kingdom of God is not words but in power

 

15 For though you have countless guides in Christ, you do not have many fathers. For I became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel. 
16 I urge you, then, be imitators of me. 
17 Therefore I sent to you Timothy, my beloved and faithful child in the Lord, to remind you of my ways in Christ, as I teach them everywhere in every church. 
18 Some are arrogant, as though I were not coming to you. 
19 But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills, and I will find out not the talk of these arrogant people but their power. 
20 For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power. 
21 What do you wish? Shall I come to you with a rod, or with love in a spirit of gentleness?

 


Gospel, Mt 18:6-9 : Do not give Scandals

 

6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened round his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. 
7 "Woe to the world for temptations to sin! For it is necessary that temptations come, but woe to the man by whom the temptation comes! 
8 And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away; it is better for you to enter life maimed or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire. 
9 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw it away; it is better for you to enter life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into the hell of fire. 
10 "See that you do not despise one of these little ones; for I tell you that in heaven their angels always behold the face of my Father who is in heaven. 
12 What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray? 
13 And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray. 
14 So it is not the will of my Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish. 
15 "If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. 
16 But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every word may be confirmed by the evidence of two or three witnesses. 
17 If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. 
18 Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 
19 Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.
