An argument arose among the disciples about which of them was the greatest.
Aware of their deepest thoughts, Jesus took a little child and had the child stand beside him.
Jesus said to his disciples, "Whoever welcomes this child in my name welcomes me. Whoever welcomes me, welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever is least among you all is the greatest."
John replied, "Master, we saw someone throwing demons out in your name, and we tried to stop him because he isn't in our group of followers."
But Jesus replied, "Don't stop him, because whoever isn't against you is for you."
