Prayer 236

The prayer series

Jesus,

I’m thinking about your act –
the washing of the disciples’ feet.*

You chose the lowliest in Jewish society at that time:
that was the washing the others’ feet
and the washing the feet of your own disciples.

Why did you choose the lowliest task?

Ah, you didn’t think it was the lowliest,
did you?

Yes,
nothing was the lowliest
and nothing was the highest.

The lowliest or the highest was the thing that humans thought about.
You were God,
so, you saw all things equal.

All things are equal.
Even two different things that you did –
the resurrection of the dead**
(which seems the highest)
and the washing of the feet
(which seems the lowliest) –
have the same meaning.

All things have the same meaning
when doing with God and for God.

Thank you, Jesus.

Amen.

PTH
