This is a "General" Fellowship question, not related to any of the current "Fellowship" forum categories. I put this topic in this category as the best place to fit it into the current structure. What is the theology of why God allows us to fail? I've heard it said that God lets us fail to show forth His Glory. As we see that we can and do fail, we see that we need to depend on Him and the Holy Spirit and the Word every moment. But while trying to abide in Him, we do fail and must humbly admit it. Failure keeps us humble and keeps us exalting God who gives us the ability to accomplish His work in us. What are other Biblical reasons you have thought about that explain why God allows us to fail?
