Today’s Words of Wisdom

Proverbs 24: 16

For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again.

Bad things happen! That’s a fact of life, but giving up is not a godly option. When we fall, God wants us to pick ourselves up and rise again. It’s easy enough to pick ourselves up the first time and maybe the second time, but what about the tenth or the fiftieth?  I don’t think this verse means it’s ok to give up after the eight failure.  The point is not to give up–period.
