A Soul in a Box

If you’ve ever wonder why shoe boxes bring
the world such needed joy,
consider they are prepared with love for precious girls and boys.

It’s not a mere chance these boxes are used to bring the blessings there,
for we see it in Ephesians 6 as how we are to share.

We’re told to have our feet shod with the gospel of His peace.
This keeps us on the path of life, bringing salvation’s sure release.

So graciously, God clothed these gifts where shoes before were laid,
to get us up on our own feet, for the price our Lord had paid.

If you’re still perplexed why these were used, here’s a play on words in whole;
just like every shoe that was in a box, so each child has a soul.
