SERVANT

"I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master,

nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him."

John 13:16

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, do you want to be great in My kingdom? Do you long for more influence and greater boundaries? Do you want to touch more people? Then be a servant. Watch what I do. How have I loved you? How have I cared for you? How have I humbled Myself?  Do the same. Ask Me to bless you. I'll send you someone whose feet and heart need washing. I was a servant. I'll make you one, too.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
One of the things I love about You most, Lord, is Your servant's heart. You stripped away Your kingly robe, and from Your pool of blessing, You washed my feet, my hands, my head, my heart.  You sought no accolades. You humbled Your-self even to death. You are truly a servant, Lord. Keep giving me baths, Lord! I want to be just like You.

SIMPLE TRUTH

If you find yourself thinking someone needs a bath, think again. They probably just need you to wash their feet.
