See the eyes light up in youth of most any age as you begin teaching about special feet with a computer in front of you. To really get their attention, have them all take their shoes and socks off.
Begin with that junk computer keyboard we’ve used in earlier steps. Show the youth the two different kinds of feet that are used on the keyboard alone. One folds out and helps protect our wrists from injury. The other feet are meant to hold the keyboard in place on the desk and protect the desk’s surface. You can continue with comparisons of many of the other types of feet used on computers. Show the strange feet on the computer mouse that are designed to slide smoothly. The feet beneath the CPU (box) protects the delicate electronic parts inside from being destroyed by heat. Many of the computer monitors have one strange foot, or pedestal designed to adjust to our needs for best visibility.
Continue your Feet Feat by describing the incredible design of the human foot God has provided. All the different sized toes are in their perfect position for carrying the heaviest loads in all different kinds of terrain and running to get away from danger.
Now many folks spend lots of time with pedicures, toe nail polish, toe rings, tattoos, and massages enough to wear the skin off. Shoes for style have created big business.
Now hold on a minute… the most beautiful feet may be in your pastor’s shoes or even yours.
Here’s how you find out… First turn to God’s precious word
Romans 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
Can you find the reference it is referring to?
The point of all this computer junk stuff is to move the attention of youth from entertaining technology to the guidebook, the Bible, provided by the Creator of all. Only there will our youth find joy, peace, purpose, and God’s incredible provisions for them here and now, but also in eternity.
Uhhhh…. Make sure everyone goes home with the right socks and shoes.
