Different Footprints

I’m sure we’ve all read Mary Stevenson’s “Footprints in the Sand” (click to see the page).

I recently had a slightly different thought about this image.

If you look back on your life and see the footprints you’ve left, what do they show? Did you travel straight to your goal? Did you step off your own path for the good of others?

Are their detours to the soup kitchen?

Do your footprints show where you dropped everything to help a friend in need?

What about children and grandchildren’s concerts, sports and school events?

Did you take on Christ’s work and carry someone else through a crisis?

Now look forward and think about the footprints you want to leave.
