Yes, but what if the Shoe doesn’t fit?

 Be of the same mind toward one another – Romans 12:16

So today, while reading, I started laughing…Be of the same mind…Of course, that quickly turned into a rhyming in my head.  “Be of the same mind…be one…obi-wan…we shall be one.”

Barnes Notes:

Be of the same mind ... - This passage has been variously interpreted. "Enter into each other's circumstances, in order to see how you would yourself feel." Chrysostom.

So try on their shoes?  Walk a mile in their shoes?

Which got me to thinkin’…

Yes, but what if your feet don’t fit?  A mile is a long walk for me…especially if done so in ill-fittin’ foot covers.  No wonder, in Jesus’ time they wore sandals.  It makes perfect sense now.  At least their toes could poke out, and there were strings to tie around various leg sizes.  Could you imagine Jesus, putting up his hand, motioning with his pointer finger, in a circular motion…”AND….SWAP!”

Oh, The random things that go through my head.

  1. Wouldn’t it be nice if we were older?
    Then we wouldn’t have to wait so long
    And wouldn’t it be nice to live together
    In the kind of world where we belong

    • See… the Beach Boys life. They don’t have to worry about the whole “shoe on the other foot” scenario, because they are barefoot in the sand or on a surfboard.

      • When I hear that Epistle, I think it is telling us all to get along with each other and then the Beach Boys always pops into my head.


      • I love the Beach Boys! I saw them years ago (when they were older) – in Orange County, CA. Pacific Amphitheater (at the Costa Mesa Fairgrounds) – it was so much fun hanging out on the lawn and dancing… the Kokomo song was still very popular…and John stamos (famous from Full House) came out and did the drumming on some of the songs. He’s a Cypress kid (local) and my hubby used to see him often because John was buddies with his coworker at the Pizza place. 🙂 So those are fond memories! 🙂


      • In Australia we call ‘flip flops’ thongs and like you I don’t wear them either….its a sad sign of aging, ugh..


      • Oh, so sad. I’m so sad. I liked my thongs. (our society kind of strayed away from that word – although huge in the 70’s/80’s – but then the “thong” underwear was introduced… so, not to confuse people, many of us began referring to them as flip flops) – “Let me find my thongs,” got raised eyebrows…do you have a habit of misplacing your underwear?
