Davidisms - When You're Tardy, You're a Thief

Are you typically prompt? Or do you usually run a few minutes late? To everything? Next time you’re supposed to be somewhere at a certain time, consider this: When you’re tardy, you’re a thief. Think about it. When you arrive late, you are stealing another person’s time. You’re robbing them of time they need to accomplish something. Scripture tells us to honor others above ourselves (Rom. 12:10). We are to think about what others need instead of what we need. To prioritize their needs over our own. It’s what Jesus did. To set an example for us. One specific way to honor others is by being prompt. At meetings. Lunches. Drop-offs and pick- ups. Church. School. Anything in which there is a start time. Because when we’re not on time, we’re stealing someone else’s. Let’s honor others. Consider their value in God’s kingdom as more important than our own. When we do, we’ll honor their time. And cease being a thief.
