Mistakes are painful when they happen, but years later a collection of mistakes, called experience, will lead us to success. (Denis Waitley, motivational speaker)

No one likes to make mistakes. We don’t start out any day or any project with the intention of making blunders. But, they do happen to the best of us. And they provide great learning experiences at the moment, and, as Waitley suggests, they are a part of our life-long experience. And, as Julius Caesar said “Experience is the teacher of all things.”

We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check (James 3:2).
