““But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go work today in the vineyard.’ 29 “And he answered, ‘I will not’; but afterward he regretted it and went. 30 “The man came to the second and said the same thing; and he answered, ‘I will, sir’; but he did not go. 31 “Which of the two did the will of his father?” Matthew 21:28-31 (NASB)
So what does this have to do with losing weight? How many people do you hear say they need to lose weight and never do anything about it? The father told the one son to go to work and the son said no but regretted it and finally went to work. Each year that goes by and you still haven’t lost the weight will bring one more year of regret. I’m not putting anyone under condemnation; we’ve all been there. But we can give our regret over to Jesus, and I’m just making an observation because I wish I had gone on a diet, stuck to it, and reached my goal many years ago. Now I’m a senior and finally going to do it. What I didn’t do is behind me now. I’m losing the weight and getting healthy now. Pressing forward.
