A Humble Servant!

Share with your friends on Facebook

Dr. Charles Mayo (1865-1939), along with his father and brother, founded the world-famous Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

A group of European medical experts was visiting the clinic and were staying as guests of Dr. Mayo at his home. In their own countries it was the custom of these gentlemen to place their shoes outside the bedroom doors for a servant to polish.

As Dr. Mayo was retiring for the night he noticed shoes lined up outside the rooms of his guests, but it was too late to wake any of the servants. With a sigh he picked up all of the shoes, hauled them to the kitchen, and spent half of the night polishing them. Dr. Charles Mayo was secure enough to be humble to do something like that.

Jesus was secure enough in his relationship with his Father to humble himself to wash his disciples’ feet. He had no need to say to the world, “Look at me! I’m somebody great!” He had all of the approval he needed.

Thanks to King Duncan for sharing.     Thanks to Lukas for the picture. 

Think of a time when YOU did something like Dr. Charles Mayo or Jesus did for guests or for strangers. 

EVEN WHEN YOU DON’T SENSE GOD’S PRESENCE, GOD’S LOVING CARE IS ALL AROUND YOU!!
