STOP AND THINK – The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. (Nelson Mandela, late president of South Africa)
We have all fallen at one time or another, not just in losing our balance and toppling over, but in failing to live up to what is expected of us. Sometimes it’s through our own weakness or carelessness. At other times, it may be through no fault of our own. But, it really doesn’t matter. Whatever the reason for falling, we must get back up; then we can move forward.
For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again. (Proverbs 24:16)
