XXIX. Duty

Luke 17:7 - But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say to him when he has come in from the field, Go sit down to eat?

Luke 17:8 - Will he not rather say to him, Make something for my supper, and gird yourself, and serve me until I eat and drink; and afterward you shall eat and drink?

Luke 17:9 - Does he thank that servant because he did as he was commanded?

Luke 17:10 - So likewise you, when you have done all those things which are commanded of you, say, We are unworthy servants: we have merely done our duty.
