Do you ever feel the mundane tasks
Are a burden now to you?
Their ‘dailyness’ gives you no break
And some are distasteful too?
Just look at them as ‘washing feet’
A task our Lord performed
The lowliest work of servanthood
Is where character is formed.
If God himself could kneel and wash
Our soiled and filthy feet
To show love and humility
To those He came to meet.
What honour then for us to do
That sacrificial thing
Then all our mundane daily tasks
Are done for God, our king.
W.B. June 2009.
