What Kind of Shoes are you Wearing?

Detectives in Huntington Beach, California, recently made a break in a cold case by identifying a murdered woman's shoes. The crime occurred in 1968, and for decades the victim's identity has been "Jane Doe." Recently the case was reopened after her shoes were traced to a regional brand in upstate New York. Now police have discovered a report of a missing woman from that area, and it appears the case may be solved.

Imagine being identified by one's shoes. The Bible teaches that those who take the Gospel to friends and neighbors have "beautiful feet" in God's sight (Romans 10:15). When our faith is steady, we travel through life surefooted, saying, "He makes my feet like the feet of deer, and sets me on my high places" (Psalm 18:33). We're to turn our feet to God's testimonies (Psalm 119:59) and away from evil (Proverbs 4:27). And we're to have our feet shod with the Gospel of Peace. In other words, we're grounded in a message that gives us peace. Our shoes will help identify us when we're shod for God.
