Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.
But knowing this hypocrisy, he (Jesus) said to them, “Why are you putting me to the test?”
Keep awake and pray that you may not come into the time of trial; the spirit indeed is willing but the flesh is weak.
But it is not so among you but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be slave of all.
When Jesus heard this, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physicians, but those who are sick: I have come to call not the righteous but the sinners.”
He sat down, called the twelve, and said the them, “Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all.”
