Mr O, you seem to have a had a very productive life. Can you tell me how you did it?

Believe me, things aren’t what they seem. I’m in my senior years and I carry with me a thousand regrets. Many of those regrets are to do with poor stewardship of time and wasted opportunities. For these I must answer at the judgment seat of Christ. If it were not for his cross, where all my sins have been forgiven, I would be in total despair.

I don’t know what to say, Mr O, except that I want to go through life with as few regrets as possible. Surely you can pass on to me a few bits of advice.

Well, there are three or four lessons that come to mind. These are things that I have had to learn the hard way. If I had learned them earlier I could perhaps have avoided many of my mistakes.

And now I’m all ears!
