in the generous life

Jesus washed the feet of his disciples.  It was the job of the lowest servant in the house, yet Jesus didn’t even flinch about doing it. He wasn’t too proud or too busy or too unaware of the need.  He just grabbed a towel and a bowl of water and went at it.

I’m always looking for practical application of scripture.  What this speaks to me is that I need to serve my husband and that even the lowliest of jobs is a good way to serve him. When I’m too proud to pick up a sock or too busy to fix his favorite meal, I’ve missed the mark.  I realize also that some of the humblest of services are the ones that touch the heart the most.

I long to accomplish a great and noble tasks, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.  Helen Keller

I just finished reading the second book of Francine Rivers’ Mark of the Lion series. I was struck with the main character’s humility and your post struck another cord with me. I struggle sometimes with serving my husband happily and in love. Someone once told me that humility is the key to all relationships and in my little experience, I’m learning that she’s right. Thanks for the encouragement!
