Scripture: John 13:1-10

In New Testament times, the Jewish people had servants to do the menial tasks. To wash people's feet was the job of the lowest servant of all. None of the disciples wanted to do this job so Jesus did it. Jesus said that He had set them an example. His followers are to be servants to others. In Matthew 20:28, it says that Jesus came, not be served, but to give His life as a ransom for many.

1. What did Jesus do when He got up from His meal with the disciples?
He took off His outer clothing and wrapped a towel around His waist. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash His disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around Him.
2. Why did Peter not want Jesus to wash His feet?
Because washing peoples' feet was a job for servants, not Jesus the Teacher and Lord.
3. How should Jesus' followers follow His example?
By humbly serving each other.

Memory verse: 1 Peter 4:10
10God has given gifts to each of you from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Manage them well so that God's generosity can flow through you. (NLT)
