Good morning people who love like Jesus did
In John 13 we read an incredible account of Jesus demonstrating the depth of His love for His disciples by washing their feet. This was not the role of a teacher but the role of a servant. Yet this is Jesus’ example to us.
One of the most powerful parts of this incredible story is the fact that Jesus washed Judas’ feet. Now we need to remember that Jesus knew that Judas was about to betray Him to death. But did He pass him by and say, “I know what you are about to do. You are not welcome here!”? No. Jesus washed the feet of His betrayer.
And that got me thinking.
How do we treat those who may hurt us and let us down?
How do we treat those who have hurt us and let us down?
Do we follow Jesus’ example or do we do things our way?
I do not think it is natural to treat people right when they have done wrong to us. But I do believe it is godly.
John 13:1,4-5 It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for Him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved His own who were in the world, He now showed them the full extent of His love…Jesus got up from the meal, took off His outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around His waist. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash His disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around Him.
