We all have our moments when we falter, fumble, or fail. I definitely have. But the good news is that our failures are not final. Our ideas of “failing” or “succeeding” are often built on false assumptions about the ultimate goal of our Christian race. The goal is actually not so much about what we accomplish for God, but that we are in the process of becoming more like him. While we are not perfect (only Jesus is perfect!), we persevere through failure. And we are called to press on — building our humility and reliance on him.
