While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity. (Publilius Syrus, 1st century BC Latin writer)
When a fast-talking salesman is urging you to buy the vacuum cleaner because “today is the last day it will be this price,” you should take a little more time to think. Considering your options could really be important. But when a genuine opportunity for service arises, stopping to think about it too long could be a grave error. Think carefully but don’t miss the opportunity.
Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith (Galatians 6:10).
