Fall down seven times, stand up eight
Sometimes, even if we mean the best and try to love with all our might, we have many weaknesses and blind spots. Inevitably, we will fall down many times.
Even if we get anxious, depressed, or even sinful seven times – our challenge is to find the strength, deal with our guilt, and stand up for the eighth time.
Our stories are less about how many times we fall but more about always standing up right after. It may even take some time because we need to rest.
But let’s always choose to stand after.
John 13:21-33, 36-38. “Amen, amen, I say to you, the cock shall not crow before you deny me thrice.”
