The Footstool World
“‘Heaven is My throne,’ God said, ‘and the earth is My footstool.’ What do you think it means?” asked the teacher.
“The earth is the place where God puts His feet?”
“That’s exactly right. Heaven is His throne and where He rests His weight. And the word for weight in Hebrew is kavode. Kavode also means glory. Heaven is the place in which rests God’s weight and glory.”
“And the earth?”
“He rests His feet on it. It bears the imprint of His feet, but never His full weight. And what does that reveal?”
“You live in a footstool world. The earth is just a footstool. It isn’t the place in which you can rest all your weight or your well-being. Its possessions are only footstool possessions. Its issues are only footstool issues. Its problems are only footstool problems. You don’t sit on a footstool; you just place your feet on top of it… on top of its problems, on top of its issues, on top of its glories. You rest your feet on it… lightly.”
“Then where do you rest your weight?”
“In the heavenlies,” he said. “But that’s another mystery.”
The Mission: Today, see the world and everything in it in a fresh way, as the footstool world, with only footstool issues, and live accordingly.
