While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity. (Publilius Syrus, ancient Latin writer)

Does this sound like a debatable premise? Yes, if you were to spend hours and days considering whether to move forward on a proposal, you may very well miss out on the plan. On the other hand, if you jump into a good-sounding venture before you’ve carefully considered the pros and cons, you may lose out on a promising project. Think carefully and move forward wisely.

Whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone … Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. (Galatians 6:10; Ephesians 5:16)
