Failure is defined as “lack of success.” But failing is not always a bad thing.

Key Points:

  • Failure is “lack of success.”
  • Failure is not always a bad thing. But we have to keep going even if we fail.
  • You win with attitude and effort, even when you lose.
  • You make God smile when you do your best, and that’s how you win at losing.

Memory Verse:

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.
