Luke 2 - Bad Sign

"This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed."
So, this kid is good news for all people, yet he will also cause the falling of many in Israel. Hmm. Sometimes a fall is good news. For all of us. If I may quote a wise old scholar, "Why do we fall, Bruce? So we can get back up again." Our lives must be constant falling and rising. It is in falling that "the thoughts of our hearts" can be revealed. This is where we learn the truth, where our false ideas can be RESET and the truth can take hold.
Lord, make us fall and then help us to rise again stronger.
