Food-For-Thought on Learning How to Ride A Bicycle

"though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand."
(Psalm 37:24)

Watching Daddy teaching J how to cycle teaches me a lesson about life.

Daddy was there behind J, watching over him.

Daddy was there jogging alongside J, cheering him along.

Daddy was there to let go at appropriate time, enabling J to learn to stand on his two feet.

Daddy was there standing by J, helping him up, when he fell.

Daddy was there providing direction, when J was in doubt of which way to turn.

Daddy was there stabilizing, when J swayed to the right or to the left.

Daddy was there the whole time, from the beginning to the end, providing J the security to move forward.

Life is sometimes very much like learning how to ride a bicycle.

We need to learn to keep a balance.

We need to learn to steer.

We need to learn to look straight and not sway easily to the right or to the left.

We need to learn to have a sense of direction as to where we are going.

Like our earthly daddy, God is there to teach us how to ride the bicycle of life.

In times of uncertainty, God is there behind us, watching over us. When we fall down, God is there to pick us up, helping us back to our feet.

“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
(Matthew 7:9-11)
