Washing of the Feet

"It is hard to effectively minister in Christ name when we look down on someone, but if we are washing their feet we look up to them giving them value and worth."

-Jonah Books

Ways you can symbolically wash the feet of those you want to be of service to include:


  • Engage in a random act of kindness

  • Leave flowers on a friend’s doorstep

  • Call someone just to check in on how they are doing

  • Share words of love and appreciation

  • Make amends for something you have done that may have been hurtful

  • Stand up for those who are unable to do so for themselves

  • Support someone, despite if you agree with their choices

  • Lend a listening ear to someone going through tough times

  • Bring a new person to your church

  • Use your God-given gifts in new ways

The main purpose of foot-washing is caring for others, cleansing us in a sin-cursed world, and to emulate Jesus in everything we do. As long as there are genuine emotions behind the act, the service to others will bring feelings of humility and empathy. It is a beneficial act for both parties.
