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.”
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.
