Whether learning from mistakes or building on our successes, we cannot dwell in the past, but must keep working to be better and do more as part of God's Kingdom. Paul reminds us in Philippians that we should forget what is behind us and move forward to reaching the goal of living life redeemed by Jesus. We can learn lessons from our past, but we must continue moving forward in life. We should strive to follow Paul's example, not dwelling on the success or failures of the past, but trying to live up to the life modeled by Jesus. We don't have to go it alone. God will help us, we just have to call on and rely on Him!
Don't dwell on the past - good or bad. Try to be the best you for God right now and always!
Thank You for sending Your Son and other servants that show me how to live life. Help me to follow these examples in order to be better, live better, and do more for Your Kingdom here on earth and for eternity. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
