"Why, when I have needed you most, you have not been there for me?"
"The Lord replied......the times where you have seen only one set of footprints, is when I carried you."
Man..... bet that guy sure felt like an ass
I think I have finally put the puzzle pieces together as to why Jesus was always having his feet washed.
I was in a pair of flip floppers all weekend, going to the store, going to eat, the beach etc. By the end of the day it looked as if I'd been howling at the moon & dancing on coals, my feet were ridiculous!
Normally my feet are adorned in a leather upper and slip resistant rubber soles that protect from street filth and vermin. My daily foot washing routine mainly consists of Regan's tickle down theory, whatever soap I use to wash my pits will eventually get the job done down below. Note to reader: choose wisely, some parts require additional attention, the theory does have its flaws.
So its no wonder Jesus was always gettin a good scrub down, he needed it! As did a lot of sandal wearing folk back then. My guess is if Jesus was walking round today he would stray from the leather sandal and pick a different foot wear option, yeah he'd probably own a pair of sandals for those backyard moments but on a whole I'd think he'd opt for a traditional sneaker. perhaps Toms shoes or hell, maybe a pair of Reebok cross trainers, comfort is certainly King.
