Are you a foot washer?

In the washing of the feet Jesus was showing us we must take on the most humble and menial tasks to serve Him Do you serve others in this way? I love to. An example was the other day when a tiny maid was carrying a heavy load.I walked over picked it up and carried it for her. Doing that here is unheard of. However I believe it gave an exalent example to no- believers. John 13:1-15

It is so nice of you to have done that. It's very difficult to be humble nowadays I t his world of ours. People are hungry for power and they yearn for more power and expect people to respect them or rather they force people to respect them by putting fears into their minds. People are so caught up with their achievements and they have forgotten humility. It's very rare to see humble people who are willing to bend and bow down to serve others despite the position in life.

Greetings, This is indeed a good example of being humble to others. At the same time it's hard to find other humble people. I myself, have no problem in being humble and serve others. About foot washing itself, I miss that in my church. But it is possible that it may start back up again. Though I remembered many times in the Church of God of Prophecy how my sister and I were taught during our teen years what it meant to be a servent to others. It was a wonderful experience. I don't know how my sister felt, but I know it made me feel humble. I'll never forget it. Have a blessed and wonderful day.

Hello godsgardener and welcome to myLot. I belong to a church that incorporates foot washing into our communion services. Jesus told us that the first shall be last and the last shall be first in his kingdom. So your helping the young maid by carrying bundle was being a servant. so many serving Christ forget the He was His Father's servant. We are all to be servants.
