Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 338

Scripture Passage: John 7:1-9
Leaders Recognise the Importance of Timing
When Jesus refrained from attending the Feast of Tabernacles, his brothers mocked Him saying, “Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest. For there is no man that doeth anything in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.” His response was very profound. He said, “My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.”
The lesson here is this; leaders recognise the importance of timing. Others may rush ahead without giving a thought to timing, but a leader waits for the right time to act. For this reason, leaders are able to produce better results. Leaders know also that the timing of another is not necessarily their timing. Therefore, they do not act when others act or because others act or think that they should act. They wait for their time and only then do they take action.
Prayer: Father, help me to know when to act.
