Selfishness is the sharp knife
   we use to stab our marriage,
       and leave it lying there bleeding
           on the cold threshing-room floor.
Put that knife back in the block,
   and like Jesus did for His bride,
      wash away the filth of every day
           from one another's sitting feet.*

2 Corinthians 6:14-15
Ruth 3
John 13:1-17

*the two-way street of always being at
the ready to wash and to have washed
one another's feet
