First of all what is the definition of “feet?” Well one definition is, “the lower extremity of the leg below the ankle on which a person stands or walks.”

The Holy Bible talks about feet in the Book of Ephesians 6:15 and it says, “And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.”

The Holy Bible talks about feet again in the Book of Psalms 116:8-9 and it says, “For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from failing. I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living.”

Imagine the smile on his face when Jesus healed the feet of a man who hadn’t been able to walk for 38 years in the Gospel of John 5:1-5:15. Jesus found him at a pool in Jerusalem called Bethesda and ordered him to walk. The man, who was paralyzed before then, got up and was suddenly able to walk.

The Holy Bible talks about feet once again in the Book of Psalms 119:105 and it says, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Amen!

Glory be to the lord! Have mercy on me, when it comes to giving or receiving donations large and small. Amen!

It is truly a blessing when we can give cheerfully to those in need and receive cheerfully from those who just might have more than they need. Amen!

The Holy Bible talks about feet once again and it says in the Book of Luke 7:38:

“And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.”

The temple officials weren’t impressed by Jesus’ care for the feet or heart of the paralyzed man who had gone without help for so long. Imagine the look on their faces.

They accused the man and Jesus of breaking religious law that allows no work to be done on the Sabbath. They saw rules where Jesus saw the need for mercy.

At first the man didn’t even know who had healed his feet. Only later would he be able to say that it was Jesus who had made him well — the same Jesus who would allow his own feet to be nailed to a tree to offer the man the best news in the history of broken bodies, minds and hearts.

The Holy Bible talks about feet once again in the Book of Psalms 8:6 and it says:

“Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet.”

What needs do you see in those around you? In what ways have you seen Jesus meet your own needs?

Tell someone else how Jesus has made you well.
