Most people have a desire to make a difference. The challenge is in translating this desire into reality. While we want to make a positive difference in the world, we need to know that we can, and how we can do it.
Jesus gave us the way, and it’s actually simple. During His last meal with His disciples before His crucifixion, Jesus did something no one expected Him to do. After supper, Jesus got up and washed the feet of the 12 apostles. It was a stunning moment. Seeing the Lord of the heaven and earth on His knees washing feet is not something you expect. But Jesus was giving us a lesson about changing our world.
After finishing the foot washing, Jesus made a powerful statement recorded in John 13:14, 15 (NIV) “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.”
In these verses, we find the key to making a difference—washing the feet of others. Making a difference starts with having the attitude and actions of a servant. You can change your world for the better by simply serving people. Your humble acts of care and kindness toward others are powerful. They communicate love and make a positive impact in their lives.
Look around you. Pay attention to the people in your world. Serve them, and as you do, you’ll change your world for the better.
