Thursday of the Fourth Week of Easter ‘a’

Amen, I say to you, no slave is greater than his master nor any messenger greater than the one who sent him.” Master will always remain master even if he or she acts with humility. Master will still be master even if he or she washes the feet of their slave. These words of Jesus were addressed to Peter right after he tried to refuse the Lord washing his feet. Peter’s reaction was very understandable -- you are the Lord, you are our Master and Teacher. You can’t wash our feet. You are called to higher things. We should wash your feet instead. Washing someone's feet, in that era, was among the clearest expressions of humility one could expect. This is a great message to all of those who are in any leadership position either in our church or anywhere else -- humility, love, and service to others would not make you a weaker leader, it will make you a greater one.
