Research indicates when people look back on their lives, more people regret not doing the things they wanted to do than regret doing things they wish they hadn’t.
Are there any things that you feel you should do? Want to do? In particular, as a disciple of Jesus, are there any things you sense God is calling you to do? If so, I encourage you to do them. You may regret not doing them when you had the chance.
Cathy is spending today helping her mom celebrate her birthday. I’ve got a couple things to do today, but Cathy encouraged me to make a lunch, head to a park, and spend some time outside on this beautiful fall day. She told me to take a good book or my Bible and recharge my soul. She reminded me opportunities like this are one of the main reasons I decided not to work full time this year.
I've got other things to do. There is always other things to do! And an hour or two outside is really not a big deal. But when the cold and cloudy days come, I think I would regret not having enjoyed this beautiful day.
How about you? Is there something you are feeling called to do today? Something that would give you joy? It doesn’t have to be big. I encourage you not to put it off. Let’s make it a no regret day!
Now I’m off to pack a lunch and get outside.
