Day 160 of 365 - If one of these little children believes in me, and another person causes that child to sin, then it will be very bad for that person.

Matthew 18:1-6 says:

1At that time the followers came to Jesus and asked, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" 2Jesus called a little child to come to him. Jesus stood the child before the followers. 3Then Jesus said, "I tell you the truth. You must change and become like little children [in your hearts]. If you don't do this, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.4The greatest (most important) person in the kingdom of heaven is the person that makes himself humble like this child.5"If a person accepts a little child like this in my name, then that person accepts me.  6"If one of these little children believes in me, and another person causes that child to sin, then it will be very bad for that person. It would be better for that person to have a millstone tied around his neck and be drowned in the deep sea. (Easy-to-Read Version)

King James Version:

1At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
