I’ve said it many times, my favorite trait is humility. My favorite people are smart, talented, and beautiful (or handsome) and they are so humble they don’t think they are any of the three. Humility is sorely lacking in the world today. It has become a society of selfie self-adulation, with humility being an unknown concept. Yet we were given the ultimate example of humility when Jesus, Lord of Lord and King of Kings, only hours before He willingly gave Himself to endure an excruciatingly painful death, knelt down and washed His disciples feet, something only done by the lowliest of servants. Self-adulation is nothing new, the Disciples had already been arguing about who was to be the greatest in Heaven, prompting Jesus to set the example, for them, and for us! “Whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant … just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve …” Can you imagine our country if everyone in DC had that attitude? Can you imagine Capri, Marco, Naples, if everyone had that attitude? Sadly, everyone won’t, but you can! Think of others more highly than yourself. Intentionally strive to be aware of the needs of others and what you can do to help them. Wash their feet (metaphorically) and while it may be hard for you, like Peter, let them wash yours!
