Do you have regrets? I do. At times, regret has paralyzed me. The guilt of my past actions kept me from moving forward. So, I’ve been working diligently to turn regret into a benefit.
The greatest benefit of regret I’ve found is that it motivates me not to make the same mistake again. Mistakes hurt and can take a long time to overcome.
Challenge: What are you doing that you regret? Do you realize the moments of “happiness” aren’t going to be worth the consequences?
I guarantee you the moments of “happiness” you are currently having aren’t worth the eventual consequences. I look back over my life and regret not serving God. The pain and suffering I caused myself, as well as the misery and heartbreak I caused others, could have mostly been avoided.
