Verse to Remember: The most important person among you will be your servant. – Matthew 23:11 (NIrV)
Big Idea: Be like Jesus and do the job no one else wants to do.
What is the worst household chore you can imagine? Taking out the trash? Scrubbing the toilet? Cleaning out the litter box?
If you had lived in Jesus’ day, it might have been washing feet. Sounds gross, doesn’t it? You don’t know the half of it.
In Bible times people didn’t have cars so they walked almost everywhere they went. They didn’t have sneakers either. They wore sandals which meant their feet got dirty fast.
To make matters worse, their roads could be pretty gross. Most of them were made of dirt, and guess what happened to that dirt when it rained. It turned to mud.
