WOULD YOU WASH THE FEET OF SOMEONE WHO HURT YOU? REALLY?

Today, while reading John 13, there was something that jumped off the page into my heart & shook me up. Jesus--knowing Judas would betray him--washed his feet anyway. Wow. With a dazed & dumbfounded look on my face, I stared at John 13 thinking, "Jesus didn't have to wash Judas' feet. I mean, just moments later, Jesus would dismiss Judas from the table so he could begin backstabbing Jesus!" Yet Jesus washed his feet. Now, I wash my boys' feet & I could see myself washing my friends feet & I might wash a stranger's feet. BUT if I have the slightest resistance to the THOUGHT of washing the feet of someone who's hurt me? Well, then, Houston? We have a problem. And the problem is in my heart. Who has hurt you? Could you wash their feet? If not, perhaps ask God to give you a heart that would.
