“…forgetting those things which are behind.” Philippians 3:13. While we can never reclaim a lost opportunity, God has provided a way to free us from the devastating effects of self-condemnation and regret. First, He pardons our sins through faith in Christ. Then He gives us new opportunities. Christ stands ready to erase the record of our sin and neglect. Trusting Him and reaching out to others, we can be freed from nagging regret. It is better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and despair.
