The time is always right to do right. (Martin Luther King, Jr, late civil rights leader)

Timing is everything, they say, from giving the tag line to a good joke to adding the proper ingredient to a gourmet dish. Sometimes, however, we seem to hesitate to say a kind word or speak up for someone else, because the time doesn’t seem quite right to us. It would be really good to keep King’s comment in mind: it’s always the time to do right.

So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin. (James 4:17)
