Matthew 18: 2-4 ” He called a little child and had him stand among them. And He said: ‘I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.’ “

This story actually started earlier as Jesus and the Disciples were traveling.  An argument had ensued among the Disciples of just who was the greatest.  So now Jesus was calling them out on it and extinguishing any  ego that was still lingering by having a little boy stand among them as an example of how He wanted them to behave.  Not as proud, honor-seeking men, but as  meek, gentle, giving children.
