The Disciples Get a Lesson in Humility
[...] Then they came to Capernaum; and when he was in the house he asked them, "What were you arguing about on the way?"
But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another who was the greatest.
He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, "Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all." Then he took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, "Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me."
Service with a Smile

Now that Peter established that Jesus is the Messiah, confirmed by Jesus, the disciples begin to play the power game. Who is the best disciple? Who will be first in heaven? Jesus gives them a lesson in humility; the first must be the last and servant of all. There's no posturing ... for all we know there may not even be such a thing as rank or position in heaven. However, if we are to err, we should err on the side of being in service and regarding all with respect and dignity.

The Search for Wisdom Continues
[...] 20 "Where then does wisdom come from? And where is the place of understanding? 21 It is hidden from the eyes of all living, and concealed from the birds of the air. 22 Abaddon and Death say, 'We have heard a rumor of it with our ears.' 23 "God understands the way to it, and he knows its place. 24 For he looks to the ends of the earth, and sees everything under the heavens. 25 When he gave to the wind its weight, and apportioned out the waters by measure; 26 when he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the thunderbolt; 27 then he saw it and declared it; he established it, and searched it out. 28 And he said to humankind, 'Truly, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.'"
Looking for Wisdom in All the Wrong Places

This poetic interlude is a tribute to wisdom. The central questions are emphasized in verses 12 and 20 which basically ask how to attain wisdom. It suggests that man is so smart as to being almost godlike compared to animals but, even so, is still barely able to scratch the surface of the wisdom of God. Ecclesiastes would be proud.
