Timing is everything. A few years back there was a show on Discovery Channel. It was about the wild animals in Africa and how they migrate. It focused on wildebeests and zebras as they migrate and how the predators would wait for them. In this one instance they had to cross this river and these huge crocodiles were waiting. They would cross by the hundreds. As these zebras and wildebeests were crossing this one zebra was crossing a bit downstream from the rest and out of nowhere this giant croc grabbed the zebra by the head and dragged it under the water and drowned it.
-This poor zebra was at the wrong place at the wrong time.
15Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people), 16Making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil.
- Ephesians 5:15-16 (Amplified Bible)
Dear Lord we thank You for the time you give us, we pray that we would use it wisely. We pray that we would take every opportunity to do the things you would want us to do. In Jesus' name, amen.
