Pick Up a Towel

13 Dec

One of the greatest examples that Jesus showed us 
what serving really means wasn’t standing in front of a crowd.

It was kneeling at the feet of His disciples.

Jesus knew that the Father had given him authority over everything and that he had come from God and would return to God. So he got up from the table, took off his robe, wrapped a towel around his waist, and poured water into a basin. Then he began to wash the disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel he had around him.
John 13:3-5

During our time in Children’s Ministry we are not only 
called to serve families, but each other as well.

You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and you are right, because that’s what I am. And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you.
John 13:13-15

So does that mean that each weekend before
our services we need to bring a basin and towel?

Maybe not literally (although it would be a great thing to do for each other as a team), but I believe that we have to come together as a team outside of what we do on Sundays and serve each other.

So if a basin and towel aren’t used, what does this look like for a team?

Get to know each other outside of your weekend services.
Pray with and for each person on your team.
Spend time together.
Support each other.
Listen to each other.
Have fun together.
Do life together.

Pick up a towel.

How are you serving the people you serve with in Children’s Ministry?
