In 1994 I was jogging and fell down the stairs of an underpass leading to East Coast Park (in Singapore). I tripped at the top and fell headfirst down the stairs, cracking my forehead on the side of one of the concrete steps as I came down. I was knocked unconsious and fell to the bottom.

When I regained conciousness there were three types of people who came to me:

(i) Those who saw all the blood and ran by saying ’eeeee!’

(ii) A newspaper reporter came to see if someone had pushed me etc..

(iii) A man who genuinely had compassion, helped to bandage me up and call ambulance.

In the same way, when we fall or trip up in our Christian lives there will be those who want to run past and not get involved and those who will report all kinds of gossip concerning our fall. In Scripture we are urged to be the third type, the one who bears the other’s burden!
