God has given us three kinds of sight; we need all three.
- Foresight: a vision for what can be
- Insight: an understanding of what has come
- Hindsight: learning from our past
Let’s talk about that last one – hindsight. Sometimes our past is our best teacher.
During his commencement address at Stanford University, Steve Jobs said, “You can only connect the dots by looking backward.”
The Bible encourages us, “Remember the days of old, consider the years of all generations. Ask your father, and he will inform you, your elders, and they will explain to you” (Deuteronomy 32:7).
Recovery Step: Think back over your past wins, losses, and draws. Ask God to give you one lesson from your past that can pave the way for a better tomorrow.
