Davidisms - It's Always the Right Time to do the Right Thing

I’m sure by now you’ve realized that Coach Smith was a great mentor to me. He influenced my life greatly. Second only to my dad.

Here’s yet another valuable lesson I learned from him: It’s always the right time to do the right thing.

Coach Smith came to Chapel Hill in 1959 with a desire to integrate the city and the university’s athletics programs. He did so and taught his players to stand up for what’s right, no matter the situation. Especially when it came to civil rights. Or areas of prejudice and justice.

Because justice delayed is justice denied.

Doing what’s right shouldn’t be put off until tomorrow. Or approached with the mentality of, “I’ll get to it.” If it’s the right thing to do, it should be done. Now! Without delay. With zero hesitancy.

The timeliness for which we should apply this truth is taught repeatedly in Scripture. Today! This instant! Now is the time to love and care for others! (Heb. 4:7).

Obey what is right today. Do it now. This very minute. Don’t delay.

For it’s always the right time to do the right thing.
