I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet. So you also should wash one another’s feet. I have given you an example. You should do as I have done for you. — John 13:14–15
Jesus taught that when we love and respect others, we show God how much we love Him.
Ways of Wisdom
Even though h=He was God, Jesus washed each of the disciples’ feet. His friend Peter wanted Jesus to stop. But Jesus said He had to do it. Jesus wanted them to understand what it means to love and serve other people.
Use the Force
Jesus, You washed Your disciples’ dusty feet. I can open the door for my mom when her arms are full of groceries. I can pull weeds with Dad. You gave me the example, Jesus. I will love and help others!
