How often have you said, “I love my feet”? Probably not often and maybe never. But the Bible teaches us to treat our feet with respect. Genesis 18:4 – “Please let a little water be brought and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree.”
So, what should we do in today’s modern age to care for our feet? Moisturize your feet daily. Use a pumice stone to get rid of calluses. Recurring calluses say something about your shoes or the way that you walk, so pay attention to them. Give your feet a 5 to 10-minute massage daily. They will love you for it.
And most importantly, exercise your feet every day. This does not mean taking a walk, jogging, playing tennis, or any other activity where your feet take a beating. We rarely exercise the muscles in our feet. Working out while wearing shoes often inhibits the muscles from working as they should, therefore your feet need additional exercise.
The exercises are simple:
• Ankle rotations
• Pulling your foot back towards the leg and then extending the foot
• Writing the alphabet with each foot
• Picking up objects with your toes such as rocks, washcloths, and other small objects
Show your feet some love daily, and remember what Jesus said to his apostles during the Last Supper. John 13:14 – “If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.”
