Matthew 18:1-6 New International Version

Who Is the Greatest?

18 1  At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" 2  He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. 3  And he said: "Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4  Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5  And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.

Temptations to Sin

6  "If anyone causes one of these little ones-those who believe in me-to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
