More than Words!
Published on August 24, 2021
Good morning family and friends,
Well… it is the end of my first week of school in 2021! My feetafter the first day required an Epson salt soaking. The rest of the week it was getting to know my students which is the favorite part of my job! The Word tells us how lovely are the feet of those who bring “good news”.
We often think to bring “good news” is to verbally tell people everything we know about Jesus.
But…as I read the text slowly, I am seeing something a little different. When it says how lovely are the “feet” of them who bring good news The word feet emphasized to me that we are to “embody” the “good news of the Kingdom of God”
The Spirit of the living God lives in us, and the fruit of His nature should come forth from our being! Love, Joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness…then self is controlled by the Holy Spirit!
Trust me there are days when certain individuals’ feet walk all over my emotions! and I have to pause and remember I have lovely feet!
Father guard my mouth as I walk out of your nature!!
It’s more than words!
