Who has learned from hindsight and went on to become a great leader? David, Moses, Peter, Paul…? The list goes on and on. Why do we become so evasive when it comes to hindsight, looking at it as a failure and not an opportunity?
In Hebrews, we read, “See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son. Afterward, as you know, when he wanted to inherit this blessing, he was rejected. Even though he sought the blessing with tears, he could not change what he had done.” Hebrews 12:16-17 NIV.
In Esau’s case, hindsight brought much grief as he traded his eternal birthright for physical gratification. What have you traded in for personal gratification? Your marriage? Friendships? How about your---soul? It’s not too late! Titus says “we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures…”However, he goes on to say that only through Jesus, “being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” (Titus 3:3-7). God is a God of second chances and His mercy endures forever! Hindsight can save us if we allow Jesus to take us through our mistakes and lead us to the foot of the cross, the same cross that delivers hope….and redemption!
