“Sink or Swim …the Millstone or Repentance?”
1. The Danger of Offense
2. The Distinction of Being Offended
2. The Dependence on Forgiveness
Luke 17:1-4
(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.” (NKJVTM)
