Jesus told his disciples to knock the dust off their sandals on leaving an inhospitable town. One interesting thing about that, is that the only other time when custom demanded that people knock the dust off their sandals was when they were entering the temple, and leaving filth and cruelty behind.
In reversing the injunction, (in telling his followers to knock the filth off their sandals before going out inmto the world) Jesus was saying that the whole world is a holy place like the temple.
Our world, that God created in his likeness, is God’s temple we must tread with gratefulness and reverence.
