Mark 9:33-37

Who Is the Greatest?

33And a  they came to Capernaum. And when he was in the house b  he asked them, What were you discussing on the way?” 34But they kept silent, for on the way c  they had argued with one another about who was the greatest. 35And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, d  “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” 36And he took a child and put him in the midst of them, and e  taking him in his arms, he said to them, 37 f  Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and g  whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me.”
