Good morning to you..
When it comes to witnessing for and about Christ, timing is of the essence. Much like approaching a traffic light, we need to know when we should not proceed, when we should pause and when we should go ahead.
Alexander Pope in his poem "An Essay on Criticism" wrote the line: "For fools rush in where angels fear to tread." Timing. Timing is important when it comes to witnessing.
Paul writing to Timothy says to him, "Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season..." (2 Timothy 4:2a) In other words, be ready at all times.
As followers of Christ we should take to heart what Paul wrote to the church in Galatia. "Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit." (Galatians 5:25) When we do this, He will lead us.
When Jesus sent out the 12, He said to them,
"...do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say," (Matthew 10:19)
It is up to us to trust Holy Spirit to lead and guide us each moment of the day. He will not let us down.
Have a lovely day.
