The Experience from Mistakes

Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.” Ecclesiastes 7:20

One of the desires I have for my child, is for her to never feel pain. (Feel free to laugh out loud.) If I tell her what to do in a certain situation and she still chooses to do the opposite and gets hurt, I am angry at her choice. One of the hardest thing to do as a parent of a young child is to let them suffer consequences. I want to fix it and make them not feel any pain. I realize that this is one of the greatest faults I can commit.

I Corinthians 6:19-20

I was watching a television show about people dealing with difficult life experiences. This particular story was about a former professional snowboarder named Kevin Pearce. He had an accident during a competition that gave him a traumatic brain injury. He was in a coma. He had a long recovery. He was able to walk and talk again, but at a different pace. During one of his meetings with his neurologist, he was frustrated about his progress. The doctor said, “love your brain. It is the most important part of your body. Learn to love it, so you can heal better.” That moment provided the catalyst for Kevin to start a non-profit organization called, just that…”Love Your Brain”. It gives people the resources they need in dealing with brain injuries and to improve their quality of life.
