Sunday we began our family (kids & parents) summer rotation Sunday school ... this summer the theme is "God calls us ... around the world and around the corner". We started our first Sunday together with Paul's reminder in Romans 10:13-15 ...
"for everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"

The kids and parents painted each others' feet! Using face paints they painted symbols (fish, cross, heart, rainbow, etc) on the tops of their feet to remind them that when they carry the Good News to others, their feet are beautiful! Discussion within their family was encouraged while they worked ... the who, what, where, when, how of sharing the Good news. Even had them show and tell their "beautiful feet" in worship as part of the children's message! Fun!

Wormy Adds:

The Greek word for beautiful is horaios. This is actually closer to our word ‘timely’. The verse is more about feet bringing timely news, which has an eternal beauty.

What makes feet beautiful/timely are the work they do. Thus, cleaning them, ritual washing, giving the Prodigal "new sandals", etc. is an act of refreshing, protecting, enabling, encouraging, restoring.


Romans 10:15 ESV 

And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”

Isaiah 52:7 ESV 

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”

Nahum 1:15 ESV 

Behold, upon the mountains, the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace! Keep your feasts, O Judah; fulfill your vows, for never again shall the worthless pass through you; he is utterly cut off.

Psalm 119:105 ESV 

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
