Who is greatest?
Reading 3, Heb 4: 12-13 : Word of God is living and active.
|12 ||For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. |
|13 ||And before him no creature is hidden, but all are open and laid bare to the eyes of him with whom we have to do. |
Gospel, Lk 9: 46-48 : Who is greatest?
|46 ||And an argument arose among them as to which of them was the greatest. |
|47 ||But when Jesus perceived the thought of their hearts, he took a child and put him by his side, |
|48 ||and said to them, "Whoever receives this child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who sent me; for he who is least among you all is the one who is great." |
