Tonight was "Holy Thursday" or some call it "Maundy Thursday". What this day tells us is that we should serve the humanity, it teaches us to bring peace and harmony in our community. During the Last Supper, Christ shared wine and bread with his followers. Jesus Christ washed the feet of his own disciples during that meal. The church and believers have been doing the same act of humility (washing of the feet) showing Christians servitude to humanity.
Remember the passion of Jesus Christ.

John 13:3-11
3Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; 4so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 5After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

6He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?"

7Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand."

8"No," said Peter, "you shall never wash my feet."
Jesus answered, "Unless I wash you, you have no part with me."

9"Then, Lord," Simon Peter replied, "not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!"

10Jesus answered, "A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you." 11For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.

Father, make us clean. Help us to always have a clean heart and a heart of servant-hood. I pray for those that need their 'feet washed' by you so that they may be clean. Help us to accept the opportunities that cross our path and be like you. Teach us to be helpful and kind to others. Please touch the hearts of those that are hateful; clean them from their feet to their head so that they may be wholly clean and pure for you.
