In keeping with our theme of dealing with the man (or woman) in the mirror, we are going to continue discussing the building of important biblical character traits in your life. Today, we will begin looking at the quality of Punctuality from “The Power for True Success” by the Institute in Basic Life Principles.
Punctuality is demonstrating the worth of people and time by arriving for appointments before they begin.
Punctuality is based on two important factors. The first is a reverence for time, and the second is a respect for other people.
Punctuality is being present, prepared, and alert for appointed times and seasons. Being punctual is living in harmony with the nature of God (Who is always precisely on time). Failing to be punctual hinders God’s purposes in our lives and offends those who are then forced to wait for us. People tend to count the faults of those who keep them waiting. The longer they wait, the more faults they find.
