The instant Adam and Eve bit into forbidden fruit, stupid moments became a fact of life.
The experiences can range from laughable to lamentable, humbling to humiliating. Whether they result from brilliant ideas...that weren't, careless actions, or unanticipated circumstances, the uncomfortable aftermath often remains fresh in our minds throughout our lives.
Here, 48 authors share 62 stories illustrating that no matter what brings these moments into our lives, it's what we learn from them that matters.
Sometimes we learn something important about ourselves. Other times we learn not to take things too seriously.
Ultimately, these moments serve to remind us we're only human, and we always need the grace and redemptive power of Christ in our lives.
