Bible: Luke 9:44-48

9:44 Take these words to heart, 1  for the Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men.” 2  9:45 But they did not understand this statement; its meaning 3  had been concealed 4  from them, so that they could not grasp it. Yet 5  they were afraid to ask him about this statement.

Concerning the Greatest

9:46 Now an argument started among the disciples 6  as to which of them might be 7  the greatest. 9:47 But when Jesus discerned their innermost thoughts, 8  he took a child, had him stand by 9  his side, 9:48 and said to them, “Whoever welcomes 10  this child 11  in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me, for the one who is least among you all is the one who is great.” 12
