Have your ever lost at something like a basketball game or a spelling bee? Today, we’ll talk about how to win even at losing. Failure is defined as “lack of success.” But failing is not always a bad thing. That might sound impossible, but it’s not!
Name the kid who couldn’t even read until he was seven: Albert Einstein. Albert Einstein is recognized as a genius (a very smart person).
Name the kid who was cut from his high school basketball team: Michael Jordan. But he became one of the best basketball players ever.
Name the guy who got beat in eight elections in his career: Abraham Lincoln. Nevertheless, he became one of the greatest Presidents of the United States.
What all these three men had in common is that they failed but, they never gave up. So, you can still “win” even if you fail. It’s all about having a “no quit attitude and trying your hardest” as we read in Galatians 6:9.
Galatians 6:9 So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.
Kids, sometimes you’ll fail, but remember the following:
You Win with Attitude and Effort, Even When You Lose
You don’t have to be the best at everything. The scoreboard isn’t the end of the story. You make God smile when you do your best, and that’s how you win at losing.
