As I look back on my life I am always tempted to say, if I only knew then what I know now. I say I was tempted to say this because it is much better to look at the mistakes we have made and see how God not only brought us through those difficulties but also taught us through those difficulties. Many times we regret our mistakes and I suppose on some level we should. We must never lose site of the path ahead of us and know that God can use those mstakes that we have made to help prevent others from making the same mistakes. It isnt a hard concept to grasp. I raised my kids to avoid much of the life that brought trouble to me. This, coupled with the knowledge God has given in the understanding of His Word, provides the perfect atmosphere to disciple others in the will of God and walking in His ways. We will never be perfect as long as we walk on this earth. We can be a little more like Christ every day. I know this world we live in will always need to see more Jesus. The only Jesus many will see is the Jesus in you and me. Be a disciple maker.
