If The Shoe Fits

I needed to get a pair of shoes to wear to church yesterday. In my rush to pack for the river trip AND a trip to Miss., I failed to get the right shoes. So, I just HAD to get a new pair (isn't that logical to you women?). I found a pair and brought them home. When I got ready for church I looked at the shoes. One seemed larger than the other. Sure enough. I had bought one shoe a size larger than what I wear. Needless to say, I was not a happy camper (get the pun?!!). I had to wear the shoes that didn't look so good. I just hope people at church looked at my face and not my feet!!

I should have paid closer attention and been sure the shoes were the right size. It was really no big deal, just a pair of shoes that didn't look good.

It IS a big deal when when we don't pay attention to our spiritual life. We not only don't look good (poor imitation of Christ) but we may influence others who see us. We have to remember, we live our Christian lives not just for ourselves but those for who are watching us.

Checking my shoes and my life, Gloria
