Don't Be Afraid to Fail

Using this simple definition, we must admit we all fail.
John says, "If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us" (1 John 1:8).

To tell honestly, I already have failed plenty times in my life! I know we all do. But it's only a matter of dealing with it, some people treat those failures as lessons for them to carry on however, some of us don't even want to try because they are afraid of failing. There's always one phrase comes every time we think about of taking a step - "What if we don't succeed?, and "What if we fail?"...and the next question would be, "what is going to happen next after I fail?". Typical human nature I should say.

However, we should always remember that s
ince everyone fails, we shouldn't be afraid to fail. As a matter of fact, we should realize we'll make mistakes and seek to learn from their them, rather than cowering from the fear of failure.
We have failed many times, although we may not remember. We fell down the first time we tried to walk. We almost drowned the first time we tried to swim, didn't we? Did we hit the ball the first time we swung a bat? Heavy hitters, the ones who hit the most home runs, also strike out a lot.

R.H. Macy failed seven times before his store in New York caught on. English novelist John Creasey got 753 rejection slips before he published 564 books. Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times, but he also hit 714 home runs.

We can't be afraid to fail, spiritually or materially. We must step out as God's children and do His work, showing kindness to everyone around us, willing to give of ourselves to help those in need.

Don't worry about failure. Worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try.
