Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new. (Albert Einstein, noted 20th century physicist)

We all make mistakes; no one is exempt. But Einstein’s observation is a challenge to keep on trying even after we’ve made a blunder. Often those mistakes help us to find a different way—maybe even a better one—to accomplish our intended goal. So, it’s the person who never tried again who foregoes the joy of discovery.

Indeed, we all make many mistakes (James 3:2). The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again (Proverbs 24:1).
