Which Is Greater

“And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.  And He said unto them,
‘The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.  But you not so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that does serve.  For whether is greater, he that sits at meat, or he that serves? Not he that sits at meat? But I am among you as He that serves.  You are they which have continued with Me in My temptations.  And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as My Father hath appointed unto Me; that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.’”  Luke 22:24-30 (TKJB)
