The bottom of your shoes can say a lot about where you have been. Studies on the bacteria of the average shoe show that there can be as much as 440,000 units on one pair of shoes! Forensic scientists are finding that testing this bacteria could possibly link that shoe to where it has been.
If we could spiritually apply forensics to our "foot," what would be revealed? Have we been walking through anything this week that could hinder our worship? If our Bible has been closed and our mind has been far from God all week, can we quickly switch to an attitude of worship as we walk into the church building?
Consider our social media, text messages, internet browsing, conversations, and thoughts. Have we been walking in places of disobedience, bitterness, anger, or spiritual laziness? Like dirt on the bottom of our shoes, these things can "track" into our worship if we have failed to "keep thy foot."
By watching our steps throughout the week, we can come to the house of worship with a heart that is "MORE ready to hear."
Fruitful and acceptable worship begins BEFORE it begins. — MacLaren
