Wash Your Feet2
We were talking tonight in Bible study about a foot-washing service, and for those of us who have been a part of one, we all agreed that it was a pretty emotional and incredible experience. We talked a little bit about why we could give someone a hug and tell them we love them without making them cry most of the time, but when we wash someone’s feet, emotions run wild.
My immediate thought on the matter is that maybe it’s because our feet is what hold the weight of everything through our day, and to have someone wash that away and just take care of us for a little bit can seem a little overwhelming.
I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on the matter. So for those of you who have taken part in a foot-washing service, was it emotional for you? Why do you think?
