For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God – Romans 3:23
All have “failed”.
We spend much of our lives avoiding failure. Obsessing over what people might think if we were to come up short.
This verse is a reminder that ALL of us are going to fail.
We are all going to come up short.
If we’re lucky it will be something small. If we’re a little less lucky it will be something big.
Either way, it’s coming.
Isn’t this supposed to be a positive email?
We have the power to respond to the failure. The bigger the failure the more power in the response.
AND the God of the universe loves us so much He sent His son to die so that we can be forgiven all of failures, large and small.
Don’t be afraid of the failures. Embrace it when you have a chance to respond to a failure in your life.
Make it a great day.
PS – I know this is easier said than done and that I don’t know your situation. God does and He still loves you so that is good enough for me.
PSS – I don’t think this means we should seek out failure or give a lack of effort or care in our lives. We must do our best.
