DAILY DEVOTIONS:May 16
'Attending to Our Divisions'
When Jesus had washed the disciples' feet, he said to them: "Amen, amen, I say to you, no slave is greater than his master nor any messenger greater than the one who sent him."
- John 13:16
In an act of true humility, Jesus bent down and washed his disciples' feet. Jesus tells us that we are all equal in God's eyes. Neither slave nor master holds the advantage. We know that this is not the case in our world. We have divisions of all kinds. We are divided by race and ethnicity. We are divided by wealth. We are divided by education and other opportunities that flow to the better off among us. These differences have led to conflict and even war. For those of us who profess to follow the gospel, we might ask ourselves if we need to bend down a bit more, to humble ourselves and work toward breaking down those barriers that divide us. It's a troubled world that cries out for some attention.
