Who is the greatest?

An EasyEnglish Story Unit (AEE) from Matthew’s Good News


Joyce Ferrie



Jesus’ friends asked,

“Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?”

Jesus called a little child to come to him.

He said, “You would have to change.

You would have to become like a little child, humble and trusting.

Unless you do, you will not even get into the Kingdom of Heaven.


 Whoever welcomes a little child like this welcomes me.


If anyone makes one of my believing children do wrong,

it would be better for that person to die.

See that you do not look down on one of these little children.

I tell you this: Their angels in heaven are always near to God.”



Get rid of all the things that make you sin

and take care not to make anyone else do wrong things.



Matthew 18:1-6, 10.
