What stands out in your life as your one single biggest regret?  It's a highly personal question that we're not often asked.  It's also one that many of us would struggle to answer.  So, take a moment and think...what is your biggest regret?

In 2016, students from Strayer University set up a chalkboard on a sidewalk near Petrosino Square in New York City.  They wrote on the top of the board, "Write Your Biggest Regret."  It wasn't long before the chalkboard was filled to overflowing with written regrets:
"Burning bridges."  "Not being a good husband."  "Not saying, I love you."  "Not being a better friend."  "Not having kids before my Dad passed away."  "Not getting my MBA."  "Not applying to MED school." [You can watch the video here]  As humans, we live with a lot of regrets.    

So, is it possible to live a life with no regrets?  Is there a way to move away from our list of "someday" and instead begin to do those things today?  Not surprisingly, Jesus has a lot to say about how to live life, and most importantly, how to live a life without regrets.   Give a listen to this podcast as we unpack the specifics of what Jesus says to one of his potential disciples, while they were sitting on a pile of fish--in a boat.  We hope you find it helpful!
