“An argument started among them as to which of them might be the greatest” (Luke 9:46).

Though this question must have been important to them at the time (for this is a conversation among young men), we come to see in later writings of the disciples that their perspective changed with experience and maturity. After all, when the truly greatest One among you chooses to lay down his life in sacrifice, conversations about any position or power we might hold seem trivial and boorish. Our lives are to be but arguments for Him.
