Everywhere else in society the “it’s too late” Or “it’s too soon” excuse holds. Think of how often we say these phrases in a day, a week, a year.
People—we—accept the limits of timing.
And so we stop pushing. We back off. We act sensibly.
Except when it comes to matters of faith.
It’s too late?—never is that true for God.
It’s too soon?—that excuse doesn’t even work when Jesus tried it.
Sometimes, let’s face it: the timing is off.
Sometimes, the timing of an event is more holy than it is sensible.
