What do you think feet are supposed to look like?

Sometimes you hear people commenting that feet are a part of the human anatomy that are weird, odd or ugly.

Some people do have unsightly feet. This is because of age, illness, injury or just wearing daft high heels. However, most people do not have feet like this.

When people say that feet are an ugly part of the body, just what do they think feet ought to look like? Would they rather have cloven hooves or pig's trotters? Or how about wheels?

I find it especially strange when Christians make this comment. They are effectively scorning the Creator's handiwork.

Our Lord Jesus walked this earth on human feet and now His feet are as burning brass (Revelation 1:15). When the saints are resurrected to glory, they will perhaps have feet of the same quality.

I believe the angels of heaven are not purely spirits, but have bodies that are in some ways like ours. I am sure they have feet like ours.

Romans 10:15

"How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace and bring glad tidings of good things!"

If anyone thinks that feet cannot be beautiful, I suggest that they be locked up for a week in an art gallery filled with paintings by William Adolphe Bouguereau.

A nurse at the hospital where I am based was talking about the new carpet she was fitting. I took the opportunity to sell the shoes-off rule to her. Seems she was probably going to do that anyway. Some people become born-again shoes-offers when they get a new carpet.

One debate that gets just as hgeated as the debate about asking people to remove shoes is the debate about Crocs.

Some people love Crocs because they are comfy. Other people despise them because they are so unstylish.

I suppose I have taken sides because I got myself a pair of Crocs recently. They really are comfy. You feel like you are not wearing shoes at all.

I think nCrocs are modernistic. They lack any unnecessart embellishments at all. Form entirely follows function.

Of course, for me the most important consideration in choosing a pair of shoes is whether they are easy to remove at the door, which Crocs certainly are!
