It’s what you do after you fail that determines who you are. (Paraphrase from Sabaa Tahir, fiction writer)
From the toddler’s fall in his first attempt to walk until the day he or she dies, there will be falls and failures. The toddler gets back up and eventually can walk without falling. We shouldn’t make judgments of others (or ourselves) when we make unintended mistakes. As Tahir says, it’s what we do next that’s important. Get up, correct the mistake, learn, and move on.
The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. (Proverbs 24:16)
