Toss Away Failed Obligations

Published by: Sam Crabtree
July 20, 2012

Annually, the third Saturday in July is unofficially dubbed “Toss Away the ‘Could Haves’ and ‘Should Haves’ Day.”

On this day people write down their failed obligations, their “could haves” and “should haves,” on a piece of paper and then throw that list into the trash. Then they make this resolution: “From this day forward, I choose not to live in the past—the past is history that I can’t change. I can do something about the present—I choose to live in the present.”

A dad has a signature over a son’s soul.

Greatness has to do with closing the gap between what I say and who I am.

You have many targets, but only a few bullets. You must prioritize and not waste ammunition.

Don’t deify your dysfunction. Repent.

Hear Crawford Loritts’s full lecture.

Thoughts on Jesus' Demand to Repent

Subtitle: 
Letters from Cambridge #2
Author: 
John Piper
Date Given: 
April 19, 2006

As part of my sabbatical here in Cambridge, England, I am working on a book with the tentative title What Jesus Demands From the World. The demand to repent is as basic as it gets in Jesus’ message. It is equally basic to, and almost synonymous with, the command, “You must be born again” (John 3:7). One of my concerns is to show that repentance in Jesus’ message is not behavior but the inner change that gives rise to new God-centered, Christ-exalting behavior. Here are some thoughts to help make the meaning of repentance more plain.
