How to have Beautiful Feet


First off, those are not my feet - it would seem kind of vain to post a picture of my own feet with the words "how beautiful" in large letters across them. :) And they're not my Dad's feet either (he doesn't care for pink nail polish on himself so much... :)), though he does preach the "gospel of peace."  These are my Grammy's feet, and I liked her pretty pink toes so much I wanted to do a post with them!

My Grammy may not be an evangelist, but she has shared the "gospel of peace" with people, and between that and her pink painted toes, I'd say she has pretty feet.  And, if you think about it, if someone shared the good news (or "glad tidings") with you - that you don't have to go to Hell as punishment for all the wrong things you've done, but rather Someone has taken that punishment for you if you'll ask Him to save you and be your Way to Heaven - well, if you believed that person and ended up in Heaven instead of everlasting torment, wouldn't you think that person had beautiful everything - even their feet?  If they helped save you from that?  I sure would.

If we (Christians) really believe we've got the answer to the world's biggest problem, shouldn't we be sharing THE cure?  And instead of letting people go blindly toward the cliff's edge, knowing something's wrong and not sure how to fix it, or sometimes not even knowing there is something wrong and how serious breaking God's law is, shouldn't we be sharing the good news AND the bad news (so they'll understand the good news)?  Among Jesus' last words spoken on earth before He went back to Heaven were,

 "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
~ Matthew 28:19-20 ~

So we're supposed to be sharing this cure.  That's what I want to do.  I haven't been doing the greatest job lately, but I'm out to try again, and He's definitely helping me conquer my fears and as His child become more like Him. :)

And so I end with the obvious question...

Do you have pretty feet? :)
