Get back up!

Success consists of getting up once oftener than you fall down. (Oliver Goldsmith, 18th century Irish novelist and poet)

Everyone falls once in a while. It might be fun to watch a toddler fall as he or she is learning to walk. It’s encouraging to see how they struggle to get up and try again. It’s tragic to watch an older person fall, who may not be able to get up at all. Even then, when helped up, the senior citizen will continue to move on. Failure doesn’t mean the end. Get up and keep going!

The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. (Proverbs 24:16)
