Isaiah 52:7

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!”

I do not have beautiful feet! Scarred from years of dancing in pointe shoes and scuffed from daily walking barefoot around the house have left my feet anything but beautiful.

But today’s scripture says that beautiful feet bring good news, proclaim peace, bring good tidings, and declare salvation.

Wherever you go this Advent season, wherever you find yourself each day, bring good tidings of peace and the good news of salvation. 

A smile and a calming, “Merry Christmas,” or an offer to lend a hand to a frazzled person may be just the good tidings and peace offered in the name of our Savior.

Whether it’s a smile, a long conversation about the true meaning of Christmas, or an act of kindness, we are witnessing to the grace of God.  

God brings peace, joy, good times, and good news.
Let’s pass it on!

Pray: Lord, make me worthy of beautiful feet. Amen
