The value of knees

When my dad injured his knee, getting in and out of the car became excruciatingly painful.

He began asking friends, “Did you ever thank the Lord for two good knees?” To my knowledge, no one he asked ever had.

What if the human leg had only one long bone extending from hip to ankle? Imagine trying to walk with legs that do not flex in the middle! Or climbing steps with two rigid legs.

The value of kneeling

Without knees we couldn’t kneel. (The word “kneel” is derived from “knee.”)

While Scripture does not prescribe a particular prayer posture, kneeling does remind us of our humble position before our Creator.

As Paul said, “. . . I bow my knees before the Father . . .” (Ephesians 3:14).
