Our obedience to God is a learning process, and failure is a part of our development. “Failure is an excellent learning tool as Peter could certainly attest.” It was through trials that Peter discovered the importance of humility. (John 13:5-14). Peter learned that God’s ways are higher than the world’s ways. (Mark 8:33).
God doesn’t reward rebellion or wrongdoing, but by His grace, “He blesses those who choose repentance and embrace chastisement as a tool for growth.”
