How Long Would You Spend to Teach Your Baby to Walk Before You Gave Up?
By Drake Mariani, Founder, MemLok Bible Memory System | Monday, October 3, 2016
Have you ever had to teach a baby to walk?
Imagine you have a baby (for those of you who are already parents, no imagining needed here), and it’s now 9 months old.
He or she is technically in the learning-to-walk phase.
Month after month goes by, and your baby still hasn't walked.
How long would you spend to teach your baby to walk before you gave up?
We both know the answer.You wouldn't quit.
You'd do everything possible until your child eventually learned to walk.
In many ways, this is what it's like to be a Christian and share God's word.
At first, you're not very good at it. You fall, but you get back up. You keep looking for the right tool, the right word, the right time to share with friends and family.
You'll keep falling down. But you keep getting back up.
Fall 7 times; stand up 8.
It's a Japanese proverb which highlights the importance and value of perseverance.
You keep trying and eventually you stand. And then walk on your own.
My job here at MemLok is just like that.
I do everything with God's power to give you the tools which help you to keep getting back up.
And when you don't take advantage of these tools, I do everything I can to keep getting you to try them.
Because I know if you took the time to really use our Bible Memory System, you'd be blown away by how powerful it is.
So, just to be clear, every time you get an email from me, remember that email is me getting up one more time.
