THE OLD TENNIS SHOES

I was cleaning out my closet
When I came upon a pair
Of worn and scuffed up tennis shoes
Laying in a corner there.

Those old shoes had walked some miles
And danced a jig or two;
I thought "they must have been the best
Back when they were brand new".

They had gotten really dirty
As they'd walked along life's roads;
The soles were flat and tattered
From the many heavy loads.

I was just about to toss them
In a nearby garbage bin
When I realized those shoes were worn
Like a soul is worn with sin.

I got a cloth and cleaned them up
And set them in a place
Where I could see them every day
In their neat and tidy space

To remind me that I saved them
From fire and heat and ash...
Just like Jesus saved me
When I was ready for the trash.
