Have you crossed the street before? It can be interesting. I tried one the other day. Just when I was about to dash to the other side, I looked left and saw a car fast approaching.
I had to pause and allow it to pass. After it moved past me, the road was now clear. I marched into the street like King Kong.
It dawned on me a few moments later that if I had crossed four seconds earlier or seven seconds later, I would not be walking on both feet.
Is that not amazing? Every condition around me was exactly the same, but taking the same steps a few seconds apart could be the difference between life and death.
In life, timing is crucial. Taking an action at a time not appointed for it can be disastrous.
It is true that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to making life work. People make the same choices at different times and things turn out fine.
But many aged people will tell you that having a child at a wrong time (either too early or too late) made life more difficult. And that’s just one example.
They would tell you that chasing certain passions at the wrong times became some of their biggest mistakes.
We have only one chance at life. We must be able to recognize what the best choices for us are at each point in time and commit to making them work.
We shall make it. Amen.
