Wednesday 31st March


Washing feet (John 13:1-17)

No, no Jesus, no.

You can’t wash my feet.

I must be self-sufficient,

Not needing anyone

Not even you.

I cannot let you

Come near the dirt

You see is there.

I am ashamed.


I follow you, love you

But in my own strength,

On my own terms,

Hanging on to my pride,

Unwilling to face

The depth of my need.


Yet still you wait,

Patient, towel in hand,

Water at the ready,

Until at last I lay down

All my foolish vanity

And let you love me.
