Loving with Humility - {Featured Post}

 I was so excited to be asked by Lindsay to Guest Post for her today.
I went to college with Lindsay. I am grateful that despite our lives and their craziness we haven't lost touch, thanks to Facebook and now we've been blessed to get to know eachother a little better by being SAH Bloggy Mommies. :) I am truly blessed by her encouraging ministry stories, "Beautiful Mommy Sentences," how she shows His love to her children and her desire to passionately follow Christ! 

I also love hearing her precious stories about her little ones who keep her on her toes!
She is also a wife, mom and nursing student. She is a precious wife to; Wes, and mother of Bella(5), Nate(2), and Marleigh(1), they all make up The Evatt's Beautiful Mess!

A Short Intro:

Does your life reflect the humility of Christ?

Christ came to earth for many reasons, but one was in order to show us how we ought to live.

In John 13:1-17 Christ does something culturally crazy. He takes on the role of a slave. A slave during that period was considered as "Less than human". He does this by washing His disciples feet. 

Of all the things I would do for my friends to show them my love- That would probably not make it to the list. 
In our day that's still considered pretty gross, but during Christ's time, feet were truly disgusting. I mean, if they were lucky enough to have shoes they wore sandals. Many went barefoot.
Come on, the thought of that weirds . me . slam . out! 

Please join me as I humbly share the story of Christ washing His disciples feet and how badly it has convicted me over the past few weeks in
Loving With Humility!

  1. Wow, I am a retired RN, and I can't imagine going to nursing school, writing a blog, and having a family (at the same time, lol). It amazes me how the Lord can and does give us strength for the day at hand! He even continues to strengthen as we age and must learn to adjust to a new season. At each stage, though we have to wash the feet of others and LOVE in humility. A big task at any stage of life!

  2. Good Morning Melissa! Your post reminds me of the times I've been convicted about this same thing. A few months ago I read a post that stir my soul, and made me check attitude.

    "I want to love better, without selfish ambition or vain conceit. To serve, to give, to unload and load the dishwasher a thousand times in a row. To empty the garbage at 9:38pm without a negative thought. To get up to lock the doors or turn down the thermostat. To sweep and dust and as I work, allow myself to be renewed and refined and put back into my rightful place – below the ones I love. I want to love like Christ." -Heather Boersma
