The atheist took exception to a local religion columnist writing about Brother Lawrence who spent 40 years washing dishes for those in need. The atheist said, “I thought his time could have been better spent doing something more productive than washing dishes.” It’s curious that those in the world feel they are qualified to judge the service of people of faith. Jesus did not consider the time he spent washing the feet of the disciples as unproductive. He said, “Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him” (John 13:14-16 NIV).
