Six More Chances

“God is not just a God of ‘second chances,’ but also the God of ‘six more chances.’ The Bible says: ‘A righteous man may fall seven times and rise again…’ If a godly man rises again after falling seven times, the mathematical implication is that when he first fell he had ‘six more chances’ left! Therefore, whenever you experience a major fall—personal, professional, or spiritual—don’t despair or give up. Don’t stay down. Keep getting up. You may be knocked down, but you’re not knocked out. Through Christ’s forgiving, transforming, and restorative grace you have “six more chances.”—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
