Who Has Not Failed?The Apostle Paul failed; Peter failed; every one of the twelve apostles failed.
David, Israel's greatest king, "a man after God's own heart," failed.
Moses, giant among the Israelites, giver of the law, deliverer of his people, failed.
Jacob, father of Israel, failed; Isaac, son of promise, failed.
Abraham, progenitor of Israel, father of the faithful, prototype of those who are righteous through faith, failed.
Even our first parents, in their human perfection, failed.
Who has not failed?
It is not failing that is the problem; it is what one does after he has failed.
To take failure as final is to be a failure. To see in failure the school of the Spirit is to let failure contribute to one's growth in Christ.
