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.
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.
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.
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).
"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).
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.
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.
