Shoes for Beautiful Feet 

When our youngest child was born, the doctor suggested that we purchase special shoes with a Thomas Heel for her.   Examination had shown that her toes turned inward slightly, and these shoes were ideal to assist normal growth in her ankles and legs.   

The Thomas Heel, higher on the inside of the foot, caused each foot to balance and support the ankles and knees. These shoes were functional, sturdy high tops, but their overall appearance was not so beautiful.   

As time went by and our daughter reached school age, it looked like the shoes had done their job.  She was excited to be able to enjoy regular school shoes that mirrored what all the other girls were wearing.   

Our feet carry us everywhere and as such an important of our body, they should be well looked after. People do many things to help their feet feel better and look nicer. 

I am reminded, in the Bible, about “beautiful feet” that preach the Gospel.  

You have beautiful feet if you are sharing Jesus with others.  If your feet are shod with the preparation of the Gospel of Peace, you do not need to have a pulpit ministry.  You can stand anywhere in those shoes and let your light shine for our Lord. 

Romans 10:15  And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written, how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things !

So true. If we bring people to God, then we have beautiful feet

Loved this story, Hazel. And yes, our feet are important *ministers* of the Gospel. The wisest thing to do is to follow the footsteps of Jesus, and to be eager to go where He leads.

Great story and lesson, Hazel. The finest of shoes mean nothing if not carrying the Word of our Lord.

It's a mind opening journey to ponder where our feet have taken us... There's another story in there, I'm sure of it.
