5,The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”
6,And the Lord answered, “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.
7,Which of you whose servant comes in from plowing or shepherding in the field will say to him, ‘Come at once and sit down to eat?’
8,Instead, won’t he tell him, ‘Prepare my meal and dress yourself to serve me while I eat and drink; and afterward you may eat and drink’?
9, Does he thank the servant because he did what he was told?
10, So you also, when you have done everything commanded of you, should say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.’”
2 Thessalonians 1:3
1, Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
2, Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3, We are obligated to thank God for you all the time, brothers, as is fitting, because your faith is growing more and more, and your love for one another is increasing.
4, That is why we boast among God’s churches about your perseverance and faith in the face of all the persecution and affliction you are enduring.
5, All this is clear evidence of God’s righteous judgment. And so you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering.
