Holy Thursday

“I give you a new commandment, says the Lord: love one another as I have loved you.” (John 13:34)

READING: John 13:12-17

12 When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments again he went back to the table. ‘Do you understand’, he said, ‘what I have done to you?

13 You call me Master and Lord, and rightly; so I am.

 If I, then, the Lord and Master, have washed your feet, you must wash each other’s feet.

 I have given you an example so that you may copy what I have done to you.

 ‘In all truth I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, no messenger is greater than the one who sent him.

17 ‘Now that you know this, blessed are you if you behave accordingly.

Jesus served others to teach us how we ought to be. We too are called to a life of service. When we serve others in a spirit of love, we keep Christ’s commandment.

Lord, give me a spirit of humility and love, so I may serve others as your son, Jesus Christ, has served me.

I will find a way to serve someone or some others today. I will perform this service with a spirit of love and humility.
