· The prodigal son. Dad didn’t chase the prodigal kid or send care packages!

He rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
●Often people want the reward without going through the pain or the process.
●Encourage people to push through the pain because there is purpose in the pain
and the process!
●Failure isn’t final! Failure is the seedbed of future greatness!
Questions To Ponder:
●Where have you provided ‘unsanctified mercy?’
●What do you need to look for in people to mentor or be mentored by in failure?
