Serve the Least to be Great in God’s Eyes:  
Gospel Reflection
on Mark 9:30-37, Sunday, September 19, 2021
In this week’s Gospel, Jesus calls forward a child and teaches the Twelve that to receive a child in Jesus’ name is to receive both Jesus and the One who sent him. First-century Palestinian children possessed no status or power, or legal rights. Jesus is teaches when we serve the least ones among us, we serve Jesus himself. Discuss with your family: Think about the people you see on the news or in magazines or TV shows. Who are some people who are considered great or very important? Why are they thought of as great or important? What did Jesus tell his disciples would make them great? In Jesus’ time, children didn’t have any power or rights. Jesus told the disciples that they are great in the Kingdom of God when they serve the people who have the least, like children. Jesus teaches us what is most important. It is not having the best things or being the best at something. When we freely and lovingly serve others, we are great in God’s eyes.
