Are you a person who is always very early for every event, or are you always running about at the last minute to get there just in time?
There are some things in life that it doesn’t really matter whether you get there on time or not, such as:
- lunch or dinner dates
- bus or train
You may not agree with some of those things, but really does it matter if you’re late for them. i.e. is it a matter of life or death?
Speaking of life or death, there are some life events that you probably don’t want to be late for:
- birth of your child
- death of a love one
It’s not the end of the world if you do miss these events, but if for example you aren’t with a loved one when they die it can be difficult to forgive yourself for not being there for them, and for you when they most needed you.
There is one other life or death situation we must not be late for, and that’s giving your heart and your all to God. If we’re too late at doing this, i.e. we die before we get round to accepting Him as our Lord and Saviour, it’s too late, our future has been decided.
