Get Up!

Stumblers who give up are a dime a dozen . . . Stumblers who get up are as rare as rubies (Charles Swindoll, Christian author)

About the first, Swindoll says, “In fact, they’re useless.” Regarding the second, “In fact, they’re priceless.” We’ve known many who’ve stumbled and just given up. “Why, try again,” they might say. But the few who fall and get right back up and move on are “priceless,” indeed. Have you ever stumbled? What did you do next? Never give up; instead get up on move on.

The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked. (Proverbs 24:16)
