“Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.” -John 13:12-17
This passage explains how Jesus set the ultimate example for servanthood. He shows here how he intended for the Christians to serve the world as well as each other.
A great idea is to have your family sit down together and have the father wash his families’ feet, not only his wife but also each of this children. In doing this he shows how he is the leader of the house like Jesus was the teacher, but also he is a servant.
