In John Chapter 18, we read about Judas betraying Jesus Christ. We know that he craved money and that he was paid to send Jesus to his death. We also read later how Judas took his own life. He could not deal with the problems he had caused. Peter denied Christ and he was sad and frustrated with his actions. The difference in the two men is how they handled failure. Judas took his life. He must have felt that he could not be forgiven. This is not true, because we know that on the cross Jesus asked God to forgive those who had crucified Him. Peter used his failure to inspire himself to preach and teach. He became a great power in the kingdom.
Application: How will you handle failures? Will they push you toward being a better person, or will you give up?
