When I was a kid, I rode my bicycle everywhere. You could do that back then. It was safe to ride through the neighborhood, down any street, and along the bayous. No one asked where I was going; it never occurred to us that riding a bike was unsafe.
There is really just one skill to riding a bike. It’s called balance. For those of you who have not yet mastered this athletic specialty, let me give you the secret.
Albert Einstein said, “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
Let’s repeat that, but by changing one word.
“Recovery is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
Recovery Step: Never take a day off from recovery. Heed the words of Job: “The righteous keep moving forward, and those with clean hands become stronger and stronger” (Job 17:9).
