Jun 3 7.18 When they came into the house in Capernaum, Jesus asked, “What were you discussing on the way?” They kept quiet because they had argued about who of them was the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Sitting down, he said to the twelve, “Anyone wanting to be first,1 shall be the last and be servant of all.” Taking a little child into their midst, Jesus said, “Truly, unless you change, becoming as little children, you cannot enter the heavenly kingdom.2 Whoever humbles himself as this child, is the greatest in the heavenly kingdom.3 Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me;4 whoever receives me receives him who sent me. The least among you is the greatest.”
