Love always does what . . .

Jesus, knowing that God had given all things used his hands and took a towel. He washed the disciples' feet. He could have taken a throne, or a scepter, or a crown, but he took a towel.

Love always does what it does not have to do. People do not have to go to foreign fields and become missionaries. Love sends them there. Paul did not have to go to prison and spend nights in dark dungeons with a bleeding back and with his feet in stocks. Love sent him there. A mother does not have to watch her baby through long days and weary nights, but love makes her do it. Yes, love always does what it does not have to do, yet love has to do what it does because it is love.
