Such an intriguing problem I see with people. Being so greatly familiar with regret, they dwell on it everyday. At the same time they set their eyes, with anxious hearts, toward the things they desire. All the while they minimize the Now.
“I hate who I was and what became of my behavior.” So they say in their hearts. Full of remorse for their failings, they look with great hope to a better man or woman tomorrow.
How hard it is to put away the past regrets. How easy it is to dream of a better future. How utterly profitable to live the moment under the rule of the Living God’s Holy Son.
