Thoughts: As Jesus and his disciples traveled to Capernaum, he realized they were arguing. Undoubtedly, Jesus knew the subject, but when they were settled in their Capernaum house, he asked they, “Why were you arguing?”
The disciples were embarrassed to tell Jesus that they had been disputing who among them was the greatest.
Well, whom would you choose?
Peter was bold.
John was charming.
Nathaniel was studious.
Philip was practical.
Andrew was capable.
Thomas was frank.
Judas managed the disciples’ funds.
Simon the Zealot had military experience.
James had administrative ability.
Matthew had been appointed by the Romans to collect taxes.
Jude–Thaddeus–Judas was a man of many names.
Even James the Less may have been appealingly diffident.
Discussion: What qualities of greatness do children possess?
Activity: Choose a lesser known disciple and learn more about him.
