Jesus washed the feet of his 12 friends as a model to all of us of humility, honor and service. It is not the one among us who is too self righteous to serve others, that will feel the hands of Christ but the one who is lowly that serves who will feel the embrace of the Living God.
“Do you realize what I have done for you? You call me teacher and master, and rightly so, for indeed I am. If I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash one another’s feet. I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do. Amen, amen, I say to you, no slave is greater than his master nor any messenger greater than the one who sent him.”
