PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD
Dr. James Merritt
1. As you now know I am willing to study any subject
if will help me communicate the Word of God. This
week I did a study of all things, feet, and I was
amazed to discover how very important feet are to the
human body. Our feet will carry us the equivalent of
five times around the earth in an average life span.
Yet, we barely pay attention to them.
