He went out of His way to be with undesirable people. The poor, the sick, women and children were all considered less in society at the time. I like the story of when parents were bringing their children to be blessed by Jesus and his buddies were all upset, thinking the kids were bothering the LORD of all, but Jesus, said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
Right before Jesus died he had his famous last supper with his friends. While the evening meal was being served, Jesus got up and wrapped a towel around his waist, poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel he had wrapped around him. After he was finished he said, "Do you understand what I have done for you? You call me "Teacher" and "Lord" and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher have washed your feet, you should wash one another's feet."
This blows me away, the Messiah, the King, as far as they were concerned, did the work of a servant, washing their feet. He didn't demand to be served, but came to serve. Jesus set the example for his followers to love and serve others. It's also a symbol of the work of the cross, but I won't preach at you, you can email me if you want to know about that.
This is my entry for Illustration Friday's theme, hero. It's a little piece I illustrated a while back for the Bible story of feeding the 5000. A boy shared his lunch, Jesus miraculously turned it into enough food to feed the masses.
And in case you are curious, these stories can be found in the book of Luke in the Bible.
