Sometimes we may be tempted to look back on our life and wish that we were different. We may wish that we could wear the same size clothes we used to wear. We may wish that we were as handsome or beautiful as we used to be.
We may also wish that we had not done certain things in our lives. We all make mistakes and bad decisions. We may wish that we had chosen a different career or spouse. We may wish that we had spent more time serving God.
All of us have good and bad experiences in life. We like to remember some experiences, and some we want to forget. Paul encourages us in the book of Philippians to forget what has happened in the past and move forward. Philippians 3:14 is an encouragement for all Christians. “I keep running hard toward the finish line to get the prize that is mine because God has called me through Christ Jesus to life up there in heaven.”
No matter what has happened to you in the past, you need to look forward to serving God and living with Him forever. Use every opportunity you have today to reach out to others and share God’s love with them. Live today as if it is the last day of your life!
