For many people, admitting mistakes seems to need a great deal of courage. It is, to an extent, affected by our pride of life (1 John 2:16). We feel shame for committing them. Harvard Business Review 2022 Summer Special Issue has an in-depth study on “How to Recover from Failure?” An article, “Strategies for Learning from Failure, by Amy Edmondson,” provides a profound discourse on the spectrum of mistakes from blameworthy to praiseworthy. “In the world, there are praiseworthy mistakes!” It leads me to a serious review of committing mistakes. The author puts mistakes into three categories: Mistakes in routine or predictable operations that can be prevented are blameworthy; Mistakes in complex operations that can’t be avoided but can be managed can enhance a person’s or an organization’s ability; Mistakes as unwanted outcomes in experiments are valuable and praiseworthy because they generate new knowledge. Are you more receptive to being wrong after reading it? It’s a pity that many people cover up mistakes with lies because they can’t accept them. Mistakes are sometimes praiseworthy, but covering up mistakes with lies is a sin. Remember the two verses when we commit mistakes: “The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in trustworthy people. (Proverbs 12:22)”; and “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9).”
