I bought a new pair of tennis shoes this week. The old pair are over four years old and they still look great. But my feet hurt when I wear them. As soon as I put the new pair on, I knew why. The arch support was completely gone in my old ones. I turned them over and looked at the soles and all the grip had worn off. But the tops look good! Sometimes we can look good too, but life isn’t as good without the arch support of friends nor as safe without the grip of God.
