For you to see my point in this pic, let me explain.
Our sunflowers are spindly. More than I think they should be. Anyway a week or more ago I noticed one had fallen over; a pretty severe bend in its stalk but I decided to leave it rather than pulling it up. Good move! 🙂
Notice its fall was cushioned by a friend. And notice too resting there with its friend it began reaching for the sun. It’s green again, putting on leaves and I do believe it just may bloom!
I see two parallels, perhaps you see others.
One. When we fall down, look to the Son right where we are and begin to grow again.
Two. Be a friend. Comfort the fallen. Lend them strength. Encourage them in JESUS. Help them look up and begin to grow again. And won’t you be so blessed when they bloom?!
Ecclesiastes 4:10 (NIV) 10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. source
