Jesus the Christ had a marvelous way of conveying deep spiritual truths by using stories and object lessons from the living world around Him.
The Puppy Dog Position: There's not much cuter than a puppy dog, except your three year old imitating one!
The tip we appreciated most was the "Puppy Dog Position" which aids in the falling down and getting back up process. My family and I know how to fall one ice, we've perfected that move, so we were especially interested in this getting back up notion. Here's how she taught us to get back up. First she sat down on the ice next to us. Then she demonstrated rolling over to her front side. Next she lifted to her hands and knees in the "Puppy Dog Position." Finally, she placed her right foot up between her two hands and slowly lifted up.

What's the first position we should model? I'd say on our hands and knees before our God is a good place to start.
Psalm 95:6 “Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker."
