Regret Your Wrongs, But Not Your Rights

“I don’t regret the things I did wrong. I regret the good things I did for the wrong people.”

I saw this quote on Facebook the other day. It made me so sad!

First of all, society tells us that we should have no regrets in life. That’s ridiculous.

If you live life thinking that all of the choices you’ve ever made were fine, then you will never have a reason to change. You’ll never see your need for Christ either!

It’s OK to regret things. Especially your sins. I hope that you would go back in time and make a different choice if you could! Whether you’re a Christian or not, I hope that you can see that your mistakes have led you to some kind of heartache. Yes, your choices have made you who you are now, but don’t you think that you could have learned that same life lesson in a different way? You don’t need to dwell on your past mistakes, but admitting that you wish you would have made a different choice is the first step to becoming a better person!

Secondly, I don’t think that there is ever a reason to regret doing something nice for someone. No matter who it is. It’s never a waste of your time or energy! Don’t be selfish… Love on the people who need it most, which are often the people who deserve it the least! We should treat everyone with love and respect, no matter what. There’s never a wrong person to be good to.

Do you think that Jesus regrets dying for you? No. But you don’t deserve his sacrifice. You were one of the “wrong people.”
