Don’t you feel just a little selfish spending all that money on your toes to sit in an air conditioned church with comfortable pews on Sunday? How can we profess to be Believers without allowing our own feet to get dirty? Do you know that many of the people who need to hear the Good News are the very people we pass on our way to our respective churches? I know, I know you finally bought a home in the suburbs, you have a fancy job, you carpool, and you play golf. Now all of a sudden you can’t be bothered with “those people.” We’ve been out of the “hood” two minutes and we have the nerve to be indignant. Weren’t you the same person that told Jesus if He blessed you, you’d bless others? What are you doing then sitting down? You can’t walk anywhere if you are too busy sitting. It’s Sandal Season now go walk in all the things God has already ordained for your life.
I believe the first pedicure ever recorded was when the woman with the bad reputation washed Jesus’ feet with her tears. The woman washed Jesus’ feet so He could walk to the cross for you and me. The sandal was considered the humblest article of clothing. Are you humble enough to put your sandals on and walk outside of your comfort zone? Notice Jesus didn’t wait for a particular time of year and neither should we. The time for walking is now! Jesus’ feet got dirty because He was busy walking. We’re so vain getting pedicures just so other people can see how pretty our feet and sandals are. Spiritually speaking of course, I believe that maybe if we paid more attention to our feet, we wouldn’t continue to venture into locations detrimental to the rest of our bodies. It’s probably a good thing the feet are located away from the rest of the body. You can’t walk with your feet tucked under your arms, only with your feet planted on solid ground. Yeah it’s Sandal Season and those sandals you’re wearing were made for walking.
