An additional thing I thought about during this experience was that Simeon is a vessel for me to learn through. For those of you who have kids, you probably understand this. Simeon teaches me lessons all the time, not knowingly, but he certainly does and he will continue to. I need to make sure I am open to LEARNING from Simeon, not just teaching him. I certainly don't get it right all the time, but being open to it, I am learning is very important. I also see him all the time just being who he is, but influencing those around him. He opens so many doors for conversation wherever we go just by being SIMEON! What a great lesson!
When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
