As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his foolishness. – Proverbs 26:11 (NLT)
What do you do when you make a mistake? Do you let it stop you? Or do you learn from it and let it make you better?
In today’s Bible verse, we see that the Bible calls making a mistake and not learning from it foolishness. When you make a mistake, you have the opportunity to learn or you can let your mistakes stop you.
It’s up to you to choose how mistakes influence you.
Today’s Challenge: Do you let mistakes make you or break you?
You’re not always going to make the right choice. You might choose a college or career path that isn’t the right fit for you. Or you might make a dumb decision about how to spend your money.
But it’s what you do in those moments when you realize you made a bad choice that makes all the difference. You can choose to let a bad choice define you. You can become bitter, upset and a victim. Or you could choose to let that choice make you better.
So today, challenge yourself to learn from your mistakes. Choose to let your mistakes make you a better person!
