Words. Hands and Feet.

Often in my reading I run along words that are just so wise. They need no explanations or additions. They are, in themselves, full of beautiful meaning.

I thought I would start sharing with you some of these words. And I believe Wednesdays would be the perfect days to do so.

Here is some beautiful wisdom with the theme of hands and feet.

"Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ's compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now." -Saint Teresa of Avila


"But any head analysis of what Jesus expects of those who choose to follow Him must be accompanied by the heart, and the hands and feet as well." -Richard Stearns, The Hole in Our Gospel


"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, 'Your God reigns!'" Isaiah 52:7


"What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like." -Saint Augustine


"The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless." -Billy Graham



If there are any hands and feet quotes you would like to add, please feel free to share!

Mmm.. good stuff. So good for the heart. I have one I love:

"And I will live to carry your compassion, to love a world thats broken,
To be your Hands and Feet.
And I will give with the life that I've been given, go beyond religion, to see the world be changed
By the Power of your Name."
- Power of your Name, Lincoln Brewster

I love the idea of Wednesdays being Word days!!
