'Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going to God...began to wash the disciples’ feet...'
The most powerful entity in the Universe.
He can do anything.
He chooses to kneel and do the job of a servant.
Washing the filthy feet of a friend who will fatally betray him.
All the libraries and rhetoric on Leadership offer less than this act.
'I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you,' he tells them - and us.
Believe him the Son of God or a man of fiction, one could aspire to model their entire leadership philosophy and behaviour on this lesson of Jesus Christ.
'One is never so big
As when one stoops down.'
- David Byrne, Never So Big
