Women in the Bible Who Failed

We’ve all failed, every single one of us. It’s just part of being human. We can find comfort in the stories of these women in the Bible who failed. Like us, they fell short, made mistakes, and underperformed.

It’s easy to get caught up in our failures and give up even trying. But God understands. He knows we’re going to fail. And He’s right there ready to pick us up, dust us off, and give us a gentle push back into action. He will take our meager offerings and use them for His glory. He doesn’t require perfection, only a willingness to serve Him however we can.
