Sometimes the disciples act like little kids. They hear that one of their number will betray Jesus. That's as low as a person can get. so now, who's at the top?
Worst of all, they talk in terms of who will be "regarded as the greatest," i.e. in the eyes of others.
Jesus cuts in and reminds them that greatness in the eyes of others isn't the main goal in life. He himself is among them as a waiter - "one who serves."
No matter who you are in human estimation, you are meant to serve others in a humble way. No way around it. That's what Jesus said, and that's what Jesus did.
How do you translate that into your life today? it could be in very simply ways: Giving a compliment or two; listening rather than speaking; just plain being nice to certain people; making the first move to contact someone you're on the outs with.
Talk it over with the Lord. He already know the people you're talking about.
