17th Sunday after Pentecost

Luke 17:5-10

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” The Lord replied,

“If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this

mulberry tree, `Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey

you. “Who among you would say to your slave who has just come in

from plowing or tending sheep in the field, `Come here at once and

take your place at the table’? Would you not rather say to him, `Prepare

supper for me, put on your apron and serve me while I eat and drink;

later you may eat and drink’? Do you thank the slave for doing what

was commanded? So you also, when you have done all that you were

ordered to do, say, `We are worthless slaves; we have done only what

we ought to have done!’”
