I was a fat and lazy kid as a youth. When I was about 7 years old, I spent a hot summer day at a neighbor's house eating an entire jar of freshly canned pickles. I then went to T-Ball practice. Needless to say, standing out at 2nd base, I pooped myself. Thankfully I did not allow that one poor decision and that very embarrassing athletic moment to ruin my life. Nearly 50 years later, if I called all of those in attendance of that practice, I am sure my failure has not impacted their life whatsoever. Nor should it have impacted mine.
Lord, we all fail and we also have failures occur to us but none of those should define us as much as what we do today and who we desire to be tomorrow.
