The Benefit of Regret

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.
