JC et al.--Living in Truth 10

Loving People
Jorge Mario Bergoglio (now Pope Francis), washing feet.
I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians.
Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
(attributed to Mahatma Gandhi)
 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them.  “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am.  Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.  I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.  Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.  Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them. Jesus Christ, John 13: 14-15, NIV
