As I stated this past Tuesday, I have updated the structure of how I will share each day, to create consistency and, hopefully, relevance for you.
Today is the first installment of Thoughtful Thursday’s where I will share a quote and some thoughts.
Here’s the quote today…
“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”
You might be surprised that I would quote Confucius, but this quote is effective, although self-reliant, and focused on our glory.
When you fail, which we all do, you can’t just sit and wallow, you have to get up again.
I truly like how the Bible says it best…
“For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again:” Proverbs 24:16
The best parts of this verse are:
“Just man” - we are only just through the Lord, so He is the one helping us back up.
“seven” - the number of perfection - we can always rise up again.
“again” - we fail a lot, and we can get up again.
Lessons Learned: We will fail, but we can get up again, in God’s strength.
Thoughts: Have you gotten back up?
