Failure Must Be An Option

19 May

If failure is not an option, than we would all be paralyzed and never try anything.

FAILURE MUST BE AN OPTION.

It is never our goal… we don’t woo it, court it or seek it. And we don’t celebrate it either.

But we allow it, accept it, learn from it.

This is true not only for ourselves but as we invest in others — we must allow them the option of failure.

People fail.

Churches fail.

Businesses fail.

BUT IT SHOULDN’T BE THE END OF THE WORLD.

Jesus never made failure the end of the story. 

Think Peter… Levi… Zaccheus… Mary Magdalene… 

So how do we create spaces and places and churches where failure is an option?

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    <p>lol John… 99% of my failures have nothing to do with sin. I think that these are very different ideas.</p><p>While sin is always a failure, failure is not always sin.</p><p>When we take risks, try new things, invest in people and ideas and visions… failure is inevitable.</p>
