The football coach was to the point of exasperation: "Losing 5 games in a row is bad enough. But what really frustrates me is that we keep making the same mistakes over and over. We just aren't learning anything!" Wasting the pain of failure happens off the field as well. WE can be slow to learn that what causes the most pain is not the initial loss or hardship but the failure to learn anything in the process.
If we really believe that God is working all things for our good, then one of the great challenges is to allow hard painful and tearful experiences to be our teacher in the classroom of life. The Old TEstament character Joseph learned through extremely difficult circumstances ow to overcome. It is my prayer that by examining his life we can learn some important lessons from him.
