The Dinner

I had dinner with my son and his wife last night. It was delightful. I had steak, chicken, and veggie skewers. He had chicken pizza, and my daughter in-law had cheese pasta. Yum, very good dinner. But, the best part was the company of these two lovely people. They are happy, they are newlyweds. They are full of dreams about jobs, children, homes, life. And, it's nice to see their enthusiasm. They both love Jesus, they have full relationships in their lives, they love me.
I've been thinking about the Last Supper a lot lately, Jesus there with His friends. The conversation they had, the love between them. Jesus serving all of them by washing their feet, loving them. Judas was there, Jesus knew that Judas was going to betray Him, He still loved him and served him. Jesus even called him His friend that night.
Judas abandoned his post, left the love relationship for a dream, really. It wasn't going the way he thought it should, so he betrayed his friend.
I'm back to realizing at an even deeper level, it's not about my plan, my dreams, my desires. This is all about MY JESUS! What He has planned for life, future and present and even past. I cannot betray Him just because it doesn't go according to my hopes. I cannot betray His people, or walk out on relationship just because it's different than how I think it should be.
Jesus, make me a worthy servant of Your will. Say That Again, Jesus. "Go child, and wash the feet of your friends."
