Humility meets greatness. Based on John 13:1-17
The potter fashioned me
A humble utensil
Utilitarian and unregarded,
Now chipped and scratched.

One night, I was selected
To wash the feet of a dozen men
By someone, another servant
Who knelt and bathed them tenderly.

He finished and said “Now you are clean.”
Suddenly, my scratches and marring vanished.
The damage I once believed permanent, gone.
He touched me; I am whole and new and beautiful.
