JOHN MARK: GETTING UP
Life is about getting up. Falling is inevitably part of the story, but
the question then is, “will we stand up?” Scientists pursue
interesting theories that turn out to be wrong. Business people
invest time and energy in companies that don't succeed. Young
people train for careers that don't turn out to suit them. Friends
pursue relationships that founder. But will the scientists find a
better theory, will the entrepreneurs found another company, will
the young folks explore another vocation? When relationships
fail, will we retreat into lonely solitude or risk again?
Mark allowed himself to be befriended by Barnabas, and he went
again on a risky mission adventure. This time he completed it.
Are you good at getting up?
Has perseverance made a difference in your life?
