Shoes as Weapons

We don’t usually think of shoes as weapons.  Even throwing slippers at someone doesn’t seem very effective, particularly fuzzy bunny ones.  But shoes as a protective weapon can be remarkably supportive and helpful.

For the Roman soldier, the protective footgear pictured in this Scripture would have helped the soldier to avoid injury, to get a good grip for quickly running into battle, to support the rest of the body, and to maintain a ready stance for long periods without fatigue.

In our Christian walk, if our feet aren’t fitted with the readiness of the Gospel of peace, we are unprepared to stand firm in the spiritual battle against an unseen enemy.  We must view the Gospel as being our best instruction for protection, support, encouragement, and direction.
