You learn more from losing than winning. You learn how to keep going. (Morgan Wooten, late highly successful high school basketball coach)
No one likes to lose. It’s not just a matter of pride. We often have really good intentions but sometimes we lose or we don’t reach our intended goal. But as many coaches could tell you, you won’t have much success if you just give up. Quite often you can learn something from the failed attempt that will be the key your future success.
That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. (2 Corinthians 4:16).
