Paul realized that he had caused pain by some things he had written to the Corinthian Christians. He didn’t enjoy hurting them in that way and even regretted some of the things he had written.Yet he realized that what he wrote had been beneficial. Even though these believers were “pained” for a time, this led them to “repentance” (v. 9). God accomplished His purposes through what Paul had written.
"For even though I did grieve you with my letter, I do not regret [it now], though I did regret it; for I see that that letter did pain you, though only for a little while." – 2 Corinthians 7:8
We all, at times, say or do things that we later regret. Some of these words and deeds may, in fact, be used by God, and accomplish things for His Kingdom.We spew hurtful words and actions all too easily
It is important to learn from the past and act as God leads you. Ask Him to help you do the things that you wish you had done. If you have hurt people with your words, made mistakes, or committed sins, confess them, and ask for His forgiveness.Allow God to help you to be faithful going into the future.
Father, let us not look back in regret,give us your priorities to stay faithful,let this sadness in us change our ways ,hearts and lead us to salvation,In Jesus’ name, amen.
