How often do you use your feet to witness to others?
How dedicated are you in spreading the gospel of Jesus? God has given us different features, talents, and abilities so we can glorify Him with them. God has given us finances so we can give. God has given us breath so we can breathe for His glory and praise His name.

Although our feet can be used for good often people use it for evil.
Does your feet run in the direction of sin or the opposite direction? Are you putting yourself in a position to compromise and sin? Are you constantly around the feet of the wicked?

God’s Word gives light to your feet so you can walk in the ways of the Lord.
We all have feet, but if you are without light you won’t get very far. God has provided us with the light of His Word. Rarely do we talk about the preciousness of the Word of God. God’s Word should dwell richly in us. His Word guides us so we can remain on the path of righteousness.
His Word aids us in identifying things that will hinder our walk with the Lord. Examine yourself. Is the light of Christ guiding your feet or are you living in rebellion? If so repent and fall upon Christ. Those who trust in Christ for salvation will themselves be a light because they are in Christ who is the source of light.

Are you willing to wash the feet of others?
As believers, we are to emulate Christ. When the Son of God washes the feet of another you take notice. The humility of Christ shows that God is real and the Bible is true. If Scripture was inspired by man, the God of this universe would never wash the feet of man.
He would never come to this world in such a humble way. We are to imitate the humility of Christ. Jesus never allowed His status to affect the way He served others. Don’t you understand that He’s God in the flesh?
He’s the King of the World but He put others before Himself. We all struggle with this. We must pray daily that God works humility in us. Are you willing to serve others? Those with the heart of a servant shall be blessed.
