Notable Bible teacher and Desiring God founder John Piper has taken issue with the popular cultural goal of pursuing a “life without regrets.”

In an episode of “Ask Pastor John” posted to desiringGod.org on Monday, a 72-year-old man asked Piper about his own feelings of regret when looking back at his life.

“I can look back on many opportunities I missed in life: missions trips I did not take, missionaries I did not support, even professional opportunities I did not take and probably should have, ways to better invest and redeem my time at every stage along the way,” the man said.
