The title comes from the children's song of the same name. But the song isn't just about learning new words for kids; the adult meaning is that we should use all of these parts of the body to enrich our lives.

Head

Inside our cranium is the most powerful device known to humanity - the brain. Humans use less than 94% of the brain's capacity. We could argue that some folks don't use their brain very much.

Rational thinking seems to be a thing of a bygone era. It makes some people's brain's sizzle. It is easier to make irrational decisions that lead us down the wrong path when we fail to think through what the consequences of our actions or speech may bring about.

Shoulders

We rely on our shoulders to provide us with strength. Good muscle tone by way of exercise slows the outward aging process. I'm not talking about beauty here, but rather avoiding looking like a couch potato.

Sometimes we need to lean on another person's shoulder or let them lean on ours. By so doing we provide others with our love which gives them the strength to move past their sorrow.

Knees

Our knees give us great flexibility. We can dance, jump, run, and kneel.

I've found that the best use of my knees is when I pray. The new covenant of Christ established when He ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father allows us to come directly to the throne with our petitions. We no longer need a priest because we who believe on the rise Lord Jesus are royal priests.

Let God speak:

"But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light" (1 Peter 2:9, ESV).

And...

"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you"(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, ESV).

Toes

Our toes not only provide us with a proper balance, but allows us to stand taller. We can get up on our tippy toes to look over obstacles like fences and see things we would not normally see.

But there is a better use of the toes, allowing us to rise above and out of our daily rut of life and create a vision to be implemented. We need to strive to stop being lazy, get our feet and toes moving, and become productive. But we need a realistic and actionable plan with certain goals to be achieved.

Plan

Remember this Chinese proverb? "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a first step?" It's true. We do not attain anything is life without risks. And I am fond of this saying (and I don't know who said it): There's no such thing as trying; you either do or you don't.

I like that because it is also true.

In the end, we all need to use these functions of the body, God's gift.

I got curious what this article is all about when I saw the title.. We all know that head shoulder knees and toes song are very popular to the young kids.. This is one way to teach them some parts of our body..

With your last statement, I agree with that.. But to me trying is when you do it despite the hesitations in your mind. Trying is doing a thing without the assurance that you can do it.

If it were possible that we can at least use up to 1% of our brains, then the world is but a better place no doubts

I think many kids like that song, especially when they sing it faster and faster and they can dance.

Some people have a brain like the Scarecrow in the film "The Wizard of Oz." It's not that they are dumb, but that they just don't put it to its proper use.

In my opinion, brain is positioned atthe top because it is the highest and most important part of humans, its used to gain knowledge, make decisions, control our body and our feelings. Other body parts been control by our brain depends on what they need to do, there are muscles connected to our brain, if we made actions then it's what our mind dictates. In real life, we are using our brain to create decisions, those decisions that have two factors, right and wrong, that's the reason why don't blame our body if we failed because at the first place we planned and create a decision to do it.
