We’re one month into the new year, and it’s been a rough start on so many levels. Many of us may find that our personal goals and resolutions have already been pushed to the wayside. Research actually says that 80% of people are in that boat at this point of the year! In response, we may be wrestling with a sense of failure. Or maybe feelings of failure is something we frequently wrestle with--we constantly feel like not measuring up to some sort of standard. The question then is: what is the standard that we’re using? What set of expectations do we feel like we’re failing to meet? And what do we do with our feelings of failure?
In this episode, we talk about three main categories of standards: God’s standard, our personal standards, and the world’s standards. We talk about what these standards are, how we can fail to meet them, and what we can do in response. Ultimately, we want to see how the gospel helps us navigate our perceived failures!
