5The apostles said to the Lord, Increase our faith! 6The 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. 7Who 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? 8Would 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? 9Do you thank the slave for doing what was commanded? 10So 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!
