Failure Is Never Final 
"For though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again.." (Proverbs 24:16a)

As I watched the Olympics in Tokyo last night, I was reminded of five years ago, at the 2016 Rio Olympics, when...

The experienced fisherman watched this go on all day and finally got tired of seeing this man waste good fish. "Why do you keep throwing back all the big fish you catch?" he asked....
