Daily D – John 13:3
Jesus knew that the Father had given him authority over everything and that he had come from God and would return to God. JOHN 13:3 (NLT)
If you know where you have come from, if you know where you are going, then you know what to do next.
So many yesterdays are now past. So many memories remain. Most are cherished. Some are grieved. All have led to this place in which we now stand.
It has been quite a week. Early last week, our daughter-in-law and granddaughter flew to Texas and I flew to Washington, D. C. Then our son and I began our drive to Texas. We spent several really good days together. We shared meals and laughter.
Two days ago, our son and I began the drive to California. We arrived yesterday afternoon. We have seen the lush, green hills of the East Coast turn into the desert southwest and, at last, the West Coast. This morning I will board a Southwest Airlines flight home.
Jesus knew where he came from. He knew where he was going. He knelt and served.
What’s your story? Where have you come from? Where are you destined? What does that make possible? What is the best service you can provide before the end of your journey?
The most meaningful hours our planet has yet known were filled with Jesus serving his closest followers, his mother, and us. What he did then provides us now with the opportunity to know and experience God.
In this opportune moment, how will you serve those who mean the most to you? How will you make it possible for them to understand what gives life meaning and purpose?
If you know where you have come from, if you know where you are going, you can live with the singular clarity of which singers sing, dreamers dream, and Christ followers fulfill.
I will serve.
Our Father, the basin and towel are my tools. I kneel and join you in your work. Amen.

Zechariah 13:9 “This third I will put into the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are my people,’ and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.’ ”
Zechariah 9:9, 10 Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. I will take away the chariots from Ephraim and the warhorses from Jerusalem, and the battle bow will be broken. He will proclaim peace to the nations. His rule will extend from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth.
Ezra 3:12, 13 But many of the older priests and Levites and family heads, who had seen the former temple, wept aloud when they saw the foundation of this temple being laid, while many others shouted for joy. No one could distinguish the sound of the shouts of joy from the sound of weeping, because the people made so much noise. And the sound was heard far away.
Daniel 2:30 “As for me, this mystery has been revealed to me, not because I have greater wisdom than anyone else alive, but so that Your Majesty may know the interpretation and that you may understand what went through your mind.”
