a greeting card on 20 April 2013. Thanks to the anonymous buyer!
I’ve painted this on request for a church in our town.
Hierdie skildery het ek op versoek van die N.G. Kerk in my tuisdorp geskilder. (Suid-Afrika) Dit word tans daar uitgestal. ’n Eer en voorreg vir my gewees! ;-)

Washing Others’ Feet
In John 13:14, Christ says,
“If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.”

    Wonderful work, this scene says so much of how we must emulate Christ in being a servant, but no one wants to do the washing!

  • Thanks for your lovely comment and also for favouring. I feel honoured!

    The footwashing is for some means that the one who does the washing is less – a servant- … while in the meantime it is all about love..and being equal.. Yeshua himself showed us that.. beautifull..

  • Thanks so much Liesbeth for your true and kind words.
