“That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” (Hebrews 6:12)
If time matters, then being on time matters. Far too many people are always late and hardly ever on time. Late to school, late to work, late to church, late to weddings, late to gatherings/functions, late to funerals, and the list goes on. I’m convinced that if it weren’t for the funeral home staff, some of you would be late to your own funeral. SLOTHFUL.
Life is built on principles. The better parts of life are reserved and served to people who appreciate, respect, and honor time. Church folks love to sing Dottie Peoples song; He’s an on-time God. Well, if we’re made in His image and His likeness, shouldn’t we be on time too?
TRUTH TIME – there are a many reasons as to why you could be late but the overriding reason is it suggests deep down you think your time is more valuable than others’.
We understand extenuating circumstances happen just call don’t text that you will be a few minutes late
I’ll leave you with this thought. We reap what we sow. If you’re always sowing slothfulness aka always late, you should expect to harvest slothfulness aka things happening and showing up late in your life. It’s time to stop making excuses. It’s time to start being on time. The way you manage time says a lot about you as a person. Why? Because timeliness is next to Godliness. How close are you?
