Truth When You Need It

There is not one good thing to be said about regret. If it led to reformation, that might be something, but it does not. Regret is a tool of the devil to snuff out one's light, to absorb into self.

It makes one feel bad AND prevents one from being a help to one's neighbor. This is good reason for the Bible statement: "God requireth that which is past."

The antidote for regret is gratitude. Expressing gratitude for every little thing, "acknowledging Him in all thy ways," leaves no room for devil-talk. Perhaps more than ever, watchfulness is required to notice and respond to the need of our fellow-man during the Christmas season.
