Text of Disciples' Failure Video—Better to Have a Millstone Aound Your Neck

Millstones are mentioned in the story of Jesus' journey to Jerusalem. You put grain in the middle and you turn it around. Flour would come out on the outside.

When we have this story is when he is in Capernaum and his disciples are trying to keep children away. And to show how important children are, Jesus said it is better for you to go for a swim with a millstone around your neck than to cause a child to stumble. He mentioned donkey-turned industrial-sized millstone. Look how important children are to Jesus.
