“Learn to do well…”
In retrospect, there are things that most children learn to do well. An example is learning to ride a bicycle. Perhaps you know someone like the girl in the following illustration.
There was a girl in the neighborhood who had a problem learning to ride a bicycle. She was so afraid of falling that she could not concentrate on learning to ride.
One day her aunt caught the girl off guard and pushed her on that bike. She fell, and the rest is history.
Once she experienced that fall, learning to ride the bicycle seemed automatic. No longer afraid of falling, she rode that bike from sun-up to sundown. She held onto the handlebars, or she let go. She could ride backward as well as forward. The point is, she learned to ride the bicycle very well.
Likewise, as Christians, we may experience a few falls while on our journey. However, most importantly, we must learn to get up, be good and faithful Christians (i.e., we must learn to do well).
Isaiah 1:17 states, “Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.”
Will you learn to do well?
