John 13:14 ” Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.”

Jesus always lead by example.  After He had washed the disciples feet, He instructed them to model what they had just witnessed.  For Jesus had demonstrated to them in simple terms what it was like to be a servant. I can imagine after three years of traveling with Jesus and witnessing countless miracles,  the disciples were feeling pretty full of themselves…so having Jesus wash their feet was probably not only confusing, but embarrassing to all of them.  But by modeling true servant hood in its unassuming and unpretentious way, Jesus illustrated humility to all mankind.
