That Dad of Mine
My 60 year old dad... is. a . saint. He spent his whole evening cleaning off and washing a huge pile of poopy diapers for another family who had something unexpected come up and ended up with about five days worth of dirty cloth diapers. Dad did it cheerfully with a smile, humming to himself while he scraped poo into the toilet... for several hours.
His servant's heart has always led we children by example, rather than lectures.
When Jesus told his disciples to wash each other's feet, I think He would have meant things like washing other peoples' toddler diapers, too....
I'm so grateful that God gave me a dad like him.
Lord, make me a servant. One willing to do the nastiest job with a song in my heart.
