I've Fallen and Can't Get Up!


The Lifeline Pendant has been a great source of security for countless numbers of seniors and persons with disabilities. You may be familiar with the advertising – a helpless senior falls down. She then simply pushes the button on her Lifeline Pendant, and immediately is in contact with emergency services. She cries out “I’ve fallen and can’t get up!” Thanks to her Lifeline Pendant, she is able to get the help she needs, and doesn’t need to remain fallen and helpless.

The Bible has a lot to say on the topic of falling. A key verse is Proverbs 24:16:

“…a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again…”

The above verse tells us that the biblical definition of a righteous man is not necessarily someone who never makes mistakes, but rather, one who knows where to turn when he does fall. In fact, the Bible encourages us to seek help from God to lift us up when we fall:

“The LORD sustains all who fall and raises up all who are bowed down.” Psalm 145:14

So the next time you fall, and you’re feeling like you can’t get up, remember that you always have a lifeline to God.
