For some reason, I felt drawn to volunteer to speak at my church. The topic was dependence and the Scripture was John 13:8, where Peter refuses to have his feet washed. Pride is what keeps us from letting others in to our messes and needs, and pride kept Peter from letting Jesus, his Master and Teacher, demonstrate radical humility by washing his feet.
Jesus calls us to follow his example. Will we let pride get in the way or will we let him work in us until we can let go of pride?
Here is a link to the audio recording of that message.
