How does that affect you today, perhaps even in a good way, as per Romans 8:28, or does that still limit you?
How have you compensated for that missed opportunity?
Or were there other, perhaps even better, opportunities because of the one you missed?
Paul talks about taking advantage of opportunities both in Colossians and Ephesians, those twin letters, each with its own emphasis.
“Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunities” (Col 4:5).
“Therefore be very careful how you live – not as unwise but as wise, 16 taking advantage of every opportunity, because the days are evil” (Eph 5:15-16).
But we do miss them, at times, and some we regret more than others.
