Several months ago, my wife LaVera spent a couple of days at the hospital after experiencing some dizziness amongst other symptoms. One of the wristbands they gave her was this big, yellow tag that says “Fall Risk.” The purpose of the tag was not to embarrass her, but to ensure that all the staff who was responsible for her care (including me) understood that she was prone to fall, and would always be prepared to support her and keep her upright.
We all have our own “Fall Risks.” That area of our lives where we don’t have full spiritual balance and are prone to fall. In order to be healthy, we must make sure that there are healthy people around us who care about us, know about our proneness to fall, and are always prepared to support us and keep us upright. Who are those people in your life? Do they know about your fall risks? Do you have the accountability in place to make sure you don’t fall?
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! ~Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
