Messengers of Love

Following the washing of the feet, Jesus prepares his disciples with an understanding of how they are to live a life of love and service and put into practice what they have just received from the Lord. They are to love and serve God, each other, and those strangers they have yet to meet. It is easier for us to dismiss those we do not like or discount those who are different from us. How can our accepting attitude toward others show Christ’s love? Today’s Readings: Acts 13:13–25; Psalm 89:2–3, 21–22, 25, 27; John 13:16–20.
