Most Christens know about Judas Iscariot betraying Jesus, before His crucifixion. But, a short time before the passion on the cross. Jesus performed a subservient role of washing the feet of His disciples. The notion of this action must have been strange, to the point, where Peter questioned the action. Jesus responded with, “You call me Teacher and Lord, which is true. And, since I, the Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet.
So, as it was then, so it is today. We are to practice washing the feet of others. Look around, there are plenty of hurting people longing for someone to wash and clean their feet. The globe is full of opportunity for the Righteous to take heed of this practice. Yet again, your focus is on you, not others.
As we prepare for the celebration of life, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I call for you to wash someone’s feet. Just as Jesus, adorn the servant role, teaching His Disciples, “How true it is that a servant is not greater than the master. Nor are messengers more important than the one who sends them.” Now, go and Love someone teaching them through your action of a servant not a master.
