A young minister was preaching a sermon on Christ washing the disciples' feet & in the midst of it he said, "Do you know, friends, we are all fighting for the top in the church, but there are so few fighting for the towel."
This was a crude way of saying that there are very few willing to be the last, the lowest & the least in the body of Christ.

“Does God ask us to do what is beneath us? This question will never trouble us again if we consider the Lord of heaven taking a towel & washing feet.” - Elisabeth Elliot.
