Missed Opportunities

One of the saddest confessions to escape human lips is “I wish I had…!” Those words express missed opportunities and regrets. Easy to be ignored, and requiring little effort to waste, opportunities are lost because of fear, pride, delay, misplaced priorities, and busyness. Missed opportunities can be costly, hence a Bulgarian proverb urges: “Seize opportunity by the beard, for it is bald behind.” Now is the time: Make that phone call or send that mail; express the apology, appreciation or love; take that decision about your studies, work, health, and relationship—with God and man. If the Spirit is prompting you on an issue or duty today, don’t miss the opportunity. Today is NOW! (cf. Hebrews 3:7-15; 4:7.)—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
