Daily Devotion: Live Your Life with No Regrets

Bible Reading: Judges 11:1-11, 30-35

Key Verse: Verse  35 And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! thou hast brought me very low, and thou art one of them that trouble me: for I have opened my mouth unto the LORD, and I cannot go back.

Key Words: I have opened my mouth… I cannot go back

It is better to sleep on what you plan to do than to be kept awake by what you’ve done.

How many times do we find both in the Bible and in our churches people living with regrets because of their choices?

In 1904 William Borden, heir to the Borden Dairy Estate, graduated from a Chicago high school a millionaire. His parents gave him a trip around the world. Traveling through Asia, the middle East, and Europe gave Borden a burden for the world's hurting people. Writing home, he said, "I'm going to give my life to prepare for the mission field." When he made this decision, he wrote in the back of his Bible two words: "No Reserves."

Turning down high-paying job offers after graduating from Yale University, he entered two more words in his Bible: "No Retreats." Completing studies at Princeton Seminary, Borden sailed for China to work with Muslims, stopping first at Egypt for some preparation. While there he was stricken with cerebral meningitis and died within a month. A waste, you say! Not in God's plan. In his Bible underneath the words "No Reserves" and "No Retreats," he had written the words "No Regrets."

We all must live with our choices.  Choose so you can live with no regrets.

What to do:
✞ Today’s choices are tomorrow’s rejoices or regrets.
