Feet washing

It's one of those strong demands made on a Christian. And when we respond with humility, there's real joy in it. Feet washing takes different forms; each has a way of edifying us.

The Bible tells of a less than socially acceptable woman who showed up (uninvited) at a formal dinner party hosted by a Pharisee named Simon. Christ Jesus was invited. Simon's approach to the Master was something of a grand human gesture. The woman's approach? She washed his feet with tears. See Luke 7:36–50; see also Mary Baker Eddy's discussion of the event in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, pp. 362–365. What a contrast.
