Thomas Edison is known for his many successes. But for every successful product, there were thousands of scrapped failures.
However, each failure was a learning step to ultimate success.
Don’t waste a good failure. We can learn from our failures.
I should be very successful. I’ve had many lessons from the college of hard knocks.
Paul the 1st Century Apostle talked about all the wonderful experiences as a leader, but then said there were these thorns in the flesh that kept him from becoming too proud.
He concluded that when we are weak, God’s strength shows up in weak people. So we should be happy about our failures knowing God works all things for the good of those who love Him and are the called according to his purpose.
