Did you ever wonder why Jesus washed his disciples feet right before He was about to suffer? Only love Himself serves so humbly. This came to mind when I was reading the part where Jesus is telling his friends, “… if anyone will not receive you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet when you leave that house or that town.” (Matthew 10:14). Who of us have not been received or listened to? Over time it can build up a layer of dust, that can weigh us down or hide our true identity. Only the one that offers living water can wash our feet, restoring them healed and whole. These feet of ours, which are described as being beautiful because they carry us to places where we can bring good news. And maybe the dust and water are used to nourish the soil of our hearts where love is grown, along with many other fruits. I have not known Him to waste anything.
