In John 13:1-17, Jesus and his disciples are gathered for the Last Supper, and Jesus performs a humble act of service by washing his disciples' feet. This act symbolizes his love and humility, as well as the need for his followers to serve one another.

At first, Peter protests, feeling unworthy of such a gesture, but Jesus explains that if he does not wash his feet, he has no part with him. Jesus' act of service and Peter's initial resistance demonstrate the importance of humility and serving others, even when it may seem uncomfortable or beneath us.
