A Prayer For Feet

Do you give your feet the respect that they deserve ?

Researchers tell us that by the time the average adult reaches the age of 65, they will have walked the equivalent of 75,000 miles, or 120,700 km. That is the equivalent of three trips around the world !

References to feet abound in the Bible. Biblical hosts brought their guests water to wash their feet.

Mary of Bethany anointed our Lord’s feet with Nard perfume, and dried them with her hair.

Jesus, as Divine Servant, washed the feet of his disciples on the night he was betrayed.

Carrying for our feet is important at any age. Healthy , happy feet will contribute greatly to our sense of well-being as we increase in years.

My husband and I have a small area of meticulously maintained lawn in our seaside garden, which we maintain to help us with ‘foot therapy.’ Of course, it is free of chemicals.

In Romans 10: 14-15, Paul describes the feet of Christians as ‘beautiful, since they share the good news of the gospel wherever they go.

  1. I learned to walk on grass once in a while. Your post reminds me the time is overdue. It does do something therapeutic, although I can’t exactly describe what that is except that it seems to ‘reset’ me back to me.

    1. You may be interested in googling “grounding” and “earthing”. Being on soft , safe grass brings us in direct contact with the earth, which is therapeutic. My husband likes maintaining this small lawn with a light weight , quiet, battery operated mower.
      My pet peeve is the sound of a traditional loud lawn mower. 🤗

  2. “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!”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭10:15‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Awesome little space y’all have there!

  3. It reminds me of the fact that my mother never allowed me to go barefoot as a child. The only time I did, it was on my friend’s front lawn and I cut my foot on a piece of glass. I suppose that is the reason she set that boundary for me. I never did it again. I really don’t like the feel of going barefoot except on a sandy beach. At home I always wear soft slippers. But it is very important to take good care of our feet. We can’t exchange them for a new pair if we wear the originals out! And I have done a great deal of walking in my lifetime though now I don’t do as much as I used to.
