Failure #2

Failure is the key to success; each mistake teaches us something. (Morihei Ueshiba, Japanese martial artist)

Mistakes aren’t final or fatal. For every successful event in a person’s life there have no doubt been numerous failures as we attempt something new. Musicians, athletes, actors—any number of people can testify to that fact. Practice may not make perfect, but it does demonstrate perseverance and determination. We are smarter when we learn from our mistakes and move on.

Indeed, we all make many mistakes (James 3:2). A quiet spirit can overcome even great mistakes (Ecclesiastes 10:4)
