Thought For Today: “Failing verses Failure”
Failure is a part of human existence. We all fail at one time or another.
The Psalmist said, “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” (Psalm 73:26)
This is why Paul could say that he could do all things through Christ who gave him both the strength and the grace to see him through (Philippians 4:13, 2 Corinthians 12:9-10).
Failing at something doesn’t make a person a failure. No one would consider Thomas Edison a failure, yet he failed thousands of times in his attempt to create the light bulb.
Edison, however, viewed his failures as learning experiences, which is what we all should do. Edison wasn’t a failure; instead, he just found ten thousand different ways the electric bulb didn’t work.
Failure isn’t falling down; rather it’s staying down once we’ve fallen. Solomon said, “The righteous may fall seven times but still get up.” (Proverbs 24:16)
