John 13 is a precious chapter, but the first 17 verses are especially dear to me. When you read them next, try and think about ways we as humans unconsciously place ourselves above others.

So let’s all take down our sails and open our eyes to see each other’s deep, internal needs. What tiny things can you do to encourage them?
