A thought for Maundy Thursday:
It might be important for us to keep in mind, especially those (like me) with a propensity to hold on to the slights and wrongs others have done toward us and those we love, that Jesus didn’t skip over Judas when he was washing feet.
Failing to recall this has sometimes perpetuated the pain cycle.
And recalling this has saved me from hurting those who’ve hurt me more than a few times.
