Caring for someone when they are weak, vulnerable, sick, or dying is a way to demonstrate the sacrificial, humble love of Jesus. Christ gave up his rights and took on the nature of a servant. Caregiving relationships often require us to give up a sense of what we have a ‘right’ to (freedom, etc). They demand that we reconstitute our sense of self, our rights, and that we find communion with Christ, who became a servant and washed the feet of the disciples... as well as communion with the disciples, who washed the body of Jesus before His burial. Caregiving can be both a profound formational experience as well as a deeply exhausting and demanding one.
