Wisdom 1: 1- 7

1:1 Love justice, you who judge the land. Think of the Lord in goodness and seek him in simplicity of heart.
1:2 For he is found by those who do not test him, yet he reveals himself to those who have faith in him.
1:3 For perverse thoughts separate from God. But his virtue, when it is tested, corrects the foolish.
1:4 For wisdom will not enter into a malicious soul, nor dwell in a body subdued by sin.
1:5 For the holy spirit of instruction will flee from falsehood, and he will withdraw himself from thoughts that are without understanding, and he will not be reached when iniquity overcomes.
1:6 For the spirit of wisdom is benevolent, and will not release the evil speaker from his talk, because God is a witness of his temperament, and a true examiner of his heart, and an auditor of his words.
1:7 For the spirit of the Lord has filled the world, and he who contains all things, retains knowledge of every voice.

Luke 17: 1- 6

17:1And he said to his disciples: “It is impossible for scandals not to occur. But woe to him through whom they come!
17:2It would be better for him if a millstone were placed around his neck and he were thrown into the sea, than to lead astray one of these little ones.
17:3Be attentive to yourselves. If your brother has sinned against you, correct him. And if he has repented, forgive him.
17:4And if he has sinned against you seven times a day, and seven times a day has turned back to you, saying, ‘I am sorry,’ then forgive him.”
17:5And the Apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.”
17:6But the Lord said: “If you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you may say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted, and be transplanted into the sea.’ And it would obey you.
