Timing is REALLY important – The Bible Says So!

Proper timing is a REALLY big deal… in sports, in business, in medicine, in education, in personal relationships… in nearly everything I can think of !  So when I read this in the Bible this morning I just had to post it (along with a brief reflection I wrote in the margin of my Bible…

Here is what the passage in the Bible says:

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
-A time to be born, and a time to die;
-A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
-A time to kill, and a time to heal;

-A time to break down, and a time to build up;
-A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
-A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
-A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
-A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
-A time to seek, and a time to lose;
-A time to keep, and a time to cast away;
-A time to tear, and a time to sew;
-A time to keep silent, and a time to speak;
-A time to love, and a time to hate;
-A time for war, and a time for peace.

(From Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 ESV)

And then my personal reflection and prayer…

“Oh Lord, may I ALWAYS prayerfully consider the proper time for things!  I believe you will lead and guide in all of these things!”
