Not A Mistake
Setting: God’s courtroom
Date: The Great Judgment
Defendants: One Average Family
The middle aged man stood up and spoke. “That’s Buck Armondy, he just happened one day, I didn’t mean to make any children, but he’s my son and my pride and joy. I haven’t been a great father to him, but I had thoughts that one day we’d travel around the world together, or that he could help me restore my old ’57 Chevy. I wish…a lot of things, but I don’t regret that he was born.” The man sat down and a younger version of him stood up and spoke.
“That’s Russ Armondy, he’s my dad, and I’m proud of him. He came to see me sometimes and I remember each visit and had so many plans each time he came. We just never seemed to do any of those things I wanted to ask him to do. Sometimes I did ask and he said we’d work on making it happen. I didn’t mean to drift away from him as I grew up, but I was busy too, and somehow time just got away from us. I don’t regret being his son, but I regret a lot of other things.”
The boy sat down and a woman stood up.
“I’m Christie Sauter and I didn’t mean to get pregnant. I fell in love and it seemed like the right thing to do, to be close and believe that everything was going to work out like I imagined in my head. I don’t think Russ had the same things in his head though, and after a while everything we said to each other just got in the way of our relationship. Buck was born and the stress multiplied and we just broke up. I thought I was a good mother, and I thought my other boyfriends and husbands would be good fathers for Buck. I don’t regret having Buck, because I do love him, but I regret not doing anything with my life FOR “my” life. It was over before I could blink an eye, and I had so many plans! Oh please let me have my life back to do over again!”
The woman sat down, wiping her eyes.
Next God spoke.
“I am God. I made each of you and not one of you was a mistake. I carefully planned your lives before I began making the earth you would live on. I looked into the future and saw every problem you would face and planted a rescue for you at every hardship in your life. It was up to you to take advantage of it, though. I knew you were going to need a Savior and best friend, so I sent you my own Son Jesus to pay the price for your mistakes and make everything right. The cost to you was nothing, only to accept him with your heart and confess your belief in Him to others.
You each had a full measure of life and lived every second of it. (God pulled out a record book and paused to look over the figures of times and choices they had made.)
I had a plan for your lives too, and you managed to live all the way through your allotted time without finding it or asking me to reveal it. You can’t have the time back again, because it is written, “It is given unto man once to die and then the judgment.” I spoke that law into being.
I’ve done everything I could do ahead of time to prevent any mistakes, but I gave you free will to choose what you would do with all of those minutes of life. I don’t regret anything I’ve done.”
Then God ceased speaking and the courtroom moved on to the next case.
There is a law and a correct path. There is a right way of doing things that will take you into prosperity, health and happiness. Don’t wait until your minutes are all used up before you ask God to reveal to you what your life was supposed to be about. Ask Him what you are supposed to be putting into your life to fulfill your destiny, so that you can say when it is over, “I lived all of my minutes Lord to the best of my ability. I lived to please you and to use every advantage you had prepared for me. I accepted Jesus and I have no regrets.”
