God help us (a meditation)

There is a time for asking questions

but there is also a day for decision.

 

There is a time to discuss who Jesus is,

but there is also a time to take up your cross and follow Him.

 

There is a time to weigh the issues carefully,

but there are issues which will not wait until tomorrow.

 

If we wait until we understand everything

we will wait for ever.

 

If we do not follow the light which we do see,

we will receive no more light.

 

If we, today, miss this opportunity

then God help us.
