Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.” ~ Luke 9:62
Jesus said, “No procrastination. No backward looks. You can’t put God’s kingdom off till tomorrow. Seize the day.” ~ Luke 9:62 (The Message)
It is important to remember the past to guard against repeating our mistakes, but it can be deadly to live in the past which can mire your life in regret.
Jesus tells his Disciples (including you and me) that living in the past and refusing to move forward makes us unfit and of no use for God's work here and now. Man, those are strong, sobering words.
A backwards looking life is another way to describe a guy who is procrastinating and putting off the new beginning he has been hoping to realize.
Listen, you have no guarantee that you will live tomorrow. Whatever you’re going to do, you better do it now. So get your new start in motion and be an effective man for God's work right here - right now.
You'll never be perfect or 100% ready - just start! Seize the moment right now.
