[Manna - May 23]
Ye also ought to wash one another's feet. John 13:14
THIS would signify that the members of Christ's body should have a mutual watch-care over one another's welfare; to keep each other clean, holy, pure, and to assist one another in overcoming the trials and temptations and besetments of this present evil world, arising from the three sources of temptation, "the world, the flesh and the devil."...Only as we cultivate the various graces of the spirit,--meekness, patience, gentleness, brotherly kindness, love--can we hope to be specially helpful to others in putting on these adornments of character and purities of life, and to get rid of defilements of the world, and the flesh. Z.'97-243 R2201:6; 2202:4
