Failure and Success
September 14, 2019
”My great concern is not that you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.” You know who said that? This man lost his job, buried his fiancee’, and was defeated in eight different political elections. This great man was Abraham Lincoln.

 

Why does failure scare us so? Especially as parents. It is the contentment with failure that should terrify us. We must teach our teens that failure not is a reason to quit, but a reason to keep trying. Failure does not define us, but it can direct us.

As a parent, we love to see our children succeed in what they do. But ask yourself this question. When did you draw closer to God? When could you hear His voice just a little clearer? Defeat isn’t bad. It’s what we do with it that counts.

Here’s a video to encourage you to push past failure.
