Servant King

Jesus washes the disciples' feet

The Gathering

Think about the two words ‘Servant’ ‘King’ How could Jesus be both of these?

Light a candle and sit quietly. Long ago people travelled from place to place on foot.  It was hot and tiring.  It was the custom to welcome visitors into your home by washing their feet in cool, clear water to help them feel better.  Usually it was a servant that did this.  When Jesus invited his friends the disciples round, they were surprised by what he did. 

Read the story:

The Story

Jesus took off his outer clothing and wrapped a towel round his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with a towel. When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his outer clothing and returned to his place. Do you understand what I have done for you? You call me teacher and Lord, and rightly so, for that is what I am.  Now that I, your Lord and teacher, have washed your feet, you should also wash another’s feet.  I have set an example and you should do as I have done for you.

Reflection

How can you show care and compassion to others today?  What can you do to show a family member that care?

Draw or write your thoughts. You could use a water droplet or a heart to show your ideas. Add it to your journal or think of a creative way to display your ideas.

Prayer

Dear Lord

We thank you for teaching us how to be kind and compassionate.  Help us to follow your example and guide us to the ways that we can show we care.

Amen
