My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure. (Abraham Lincoln)
We all have experienced failure of some kind—a lost ballgame, a low test score, a poor interview, perhaps; but we did not let that stop us from moving on. It’s only when we accept failure as the final outcome that we truly fail. No one has ever accomplished anything worthwhile if he or she didn’t rise up from the fall and take another step toward success.
The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked (Proverbs 24:16).
