2 - Learning From Failure

Session 2


In the first session, we discovered a biblical view of success and why stewardship should guide the Christian worker. In this next session, Cheryl will discuss failure and why we should change our perspective about it. We can learn our most important life lessons from failure if we don’t let them define who we are. 



No one likes to fail. In most cases it can feel like wasted time, it can feel embarrassing, or leave us feeling hopeless and stuck. Yet our failures are the very things that teach us the best lessons for our futures. 

What did you think of Cheryl’s view of failure? What did you take away from her discussion?

Failures are what mold us, shape our future decisions, and serve as a way to help us grow. Most of what we learn is through a failure we had to experience. It allows us to review our mistakes, sharpen our skills, and develop into better workers. When we view success as service and failure as opportunity, our lives begin to shift into a fertile ground for spiritual development and growth. This week, take a moment to reflect on what you learned in this course. Pray and ask God to re-orient your perspective and help you accept any necessary changes.
