We recently went to the rural and did a bit of exploring with friends. We visited a local mangrove forest. Our feet became very dirty from the silt and sand. Locals offered to wash our feet for a very nominal fee. I snapped this picture as Cooper was having his feet washed.

I was reminded of the love Jesus had for his disciples as he washed their dirty, stinky feet. He told his disciples “Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet” (John 13:14).

While it is now uncommon to wash our feet before entering a home in Western culture, what am I doing to reach out to others and serve them in this same humble and sacrificial manner? How am I “washing the feet” of those in our neighborhood and community. This was a beautiful reminder for me to do something out of my comfort zone this week to serve someone else. I hope it encourages you as well!

  1. For some reason I’m not seeing the pictures with the past few posts. Perhaps I’m doing something wrong on my end. I don’t want to miss out 🙂
