Most of us do not think our feet are very attractive. Many people have aching feet. Did you know one-fourth of all the bones in your body are in your feet? There are 54 bones, 19 muscles and 100 ligaments and tendons. The average American walks 70,000 miles in a lifetime!
The Bible talks about our feet and the steps we take. “If the Lord delights in a man’s way, he will make his steps firm; though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand” (Psalm 37:23). God cares so much about our feet, He even counts our steps. “Does he not see my ways and count my every step” (Job 31:4). In the next verse God tells us who has beautiful feet. “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news” (Isaiah 52:7).
When I see a newborn baby, I always look at their precious hands and feet. I love baby’s feet! It makes me think of all the places they will go and what they will accomplish in their life. The next time you look at your feet or someone else’s feet, remember these Bible verses.
Feet can be beautiful, especially if they are walking on the right path and sharing the Good News!
