1 Timothy 5:9- Do not let a widow under sixty years old be taken into the number, and not unless she has been the wife of one man, 10 – well reported for good works: [#1] if she has brought up children, [#2] if she has lodged strangers, [#3] if she has washed the saints’ feet, [#4] if she has relieved the afflicted,[#5] if she has diligently followed every good work.

In 1 Timothy 5:10 the third thing we see is “if she has washed the saints’ feet”. Since we mostly ride in automobiles and wear full shoes and even socks today, we don’t really have this issue. However, washing the feet of someone [be it clean or dirty] is still a very humbling thing to do. Think back to the time they were living - both people and animals traveled the mostly bare dirt roads in Israel. Because their feet would have been covered with dirt and animal dung, they would want to make sure their feet were washed before they entered a home. This goes to show that that a woman must let go of her dignity and pride in order to fulfill her role in the body of Messiah. Yahushua Himself washed the feet of His disciples as an example of the kind of attitude we should have.
