Why foot washing? Couldn’t Jesus have suggested something easier like hand washing or face washing?
But Jesus not only commanded that we wash one another’s feet: He humbled Himself to wash ours first.
It is a strange thing how washing feet shows Jesus that we love him and the world that He loves them! He washes us to prepare our feet to walk onto heaven’s holy ground. We wash one another to prepare each other to walk into the world and share the love of Christ.
With Lent on the horizon this is a good time to ask, “Am I ready and willing to wash someone’s feet today?”
