A Thought: Failure. Everyone has a failure or two they painfully acknowledge, if they’re aware or honest. Even great leaders know that you grow to leadership from learning great truth from personal failures. John Wesley, founder of Methodism, failed miserably in his mission to convert the Native Americans when coming to America to preach salvation in Christ. He would eventually bring Christianity to America, but did fail in his first attempt, devastating his ego and his faith. Yet, today, millions of Christians around the world remember his teachings on Christ and are thankful for his reminders to grow in grace, and that we believers are moving forward in this life toward Christian Perfection. On this Wednesday, persevere in your struggles, for God will bless you with more strength and His Grace. 2 Peter 3:18 “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.”
