I’d be more grateful for what God has done for me in forgiving me and for brethren who helped me to grow in my faith. I owe so much to the Lord and to His servants who have blessed my life. I would cultivate in my heart a greater gratitude for God’s goodness.

I’d forget Phil more and think of Christ more (John 3:30). I’d be more sensitive to others and especially to the lost who need the Lord. I would speak the truth in love more often and more effectively. I would learn everything I could about the Bible so that I might share more effectively with others. I would forget ambition and pursue service. I would fight the temptation to be proud, which is the scourge of preaching.

I’d take more time to think of brotherhood. I would learn how to love better, how to forgive more quickly, how to encourage more often, how to warn when needed, how to be a peacemaker, and how to be gentle.

I would pay more attention to reading the Old Testament.

I would take a long, long look at the cross and at the empty tomb.
