Recently, I’ve worked on three electronic devices – 2 seven inch tablets and a cell phone. I watched Youtube videos on how to fix them, and I tried getting the right tools for the job. I hoped and prayed that I could fix them. Well, needless to say, I failed at all three attempts and actually made them worse than before I started. One of the tablets I gave to a person who does those kinds of repairs – and it got fixed. The other two devices were a lost cause and ended up in the trash. I tried and failed. Will I try again in the future? Probably. We try and fail sometimes, but eventually we will succeed at some point in some way. I want to live a life of at least trying, knowing that I may fail, but to be OK with that and move on or keep trying. At some point I need to re-evaluate my motives and stop if I continually fail time after time after time. Being a member of church, are we afraid to try new things with the possibility of failure? Jesus gave his disciples countless second chances after they messed up. Perhaps I can do the same with myself some day. I hope you can too.
