Learning How to Fall

Dalia Mogahed

                               Dalia Mogahed

The martial arts first teach students how to fall because they will inevitably be knocked down. They must learn to do so without irreparable injury. We need to learn to fall without breaking, with grace, with humility and with gratitude for what we find "down there." We discover our own poverty, our own fallibility, our own desperate need for God's grace, and in the process, a new found compassion for the flaws of others. Never look at someone's fall and ...think "never me." If they fall different from you know that it was not your strength or smarts, but God's infinite protection that spared you their sin. So when you fall, learn to fall with dignity, never into despair. Our dean began with a graceful fall. Adam's wasn't a fall into darkness. It was a fall into light. It opened forgiveness, humility and redemption. This is how a believer should fall.
