“So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?“
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where, despite your relative affluence or age, you were asked to serve others? How did that experience make you feel?
Let’s be honest; it can be humbling to serve others, even when we perceive ourselves as equals. Now, imagine how it felt for Jesus, the God of all the earth, to take on the role of a lowly servant and wash His disciples’ feet. In this act, He exemplified true honor.
Serving others doesn’t diminish your significance; it enhances it. It deepens your understanding and prepares you to be a vessel for God’s use. God prefers to use humble vessels. He wouldn’t use vessels that will be prefer to accrue the glories to themselves. So, humble yourself, and never elevate yourself above others. Be the person who willingly serves and blesses others, regardless of your status.
Study: John 13:4-16
