Preventing regret

This is a depressing thought: I think many of us are going to get to the end of our lives and have a ton of regret. 

We'll regret chances we didn't take, relationships we didn't pursue, forgiveness we didn't offer, experiences we let pass us by... the list could go on and on and on. There are so many potential regrets.

But we don't have to get to the end of our lives and have regret. We can live in such a way that we "regret-proof" our lives. 

There are a number of ways to do this: 

  • We need to live wisely.
  • We need to follow Jesus obediently.
  • We need to forgive freely.
  • We need to fight for relationships.
  • We need to face our fears.
What are you doing now to regret-proof your life? 

Here's what I think: If there is one thing that you know you need to do but you've been putting it off and putting it off and putting it off. Start there. Stop putting it off because it's the key to putting you on a path of regret-free living.
