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."
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.
