Time (5)

Sometimes we make mistakes and do things at the wrong time. Maybe we set the alarm clock for 6 p.m. instead of 6 a.m. So then we oversleep and are late for work. Or we write down the wrong time for an appointment, and we arrive three hours early.
God does not make mistakes with time. Verses 4 and 5 of our Bible Reading talk about God sending Jesus to earth. “But when the right time came, God sent his Son. God’s Son was born from a woman. God’s Son lived under the law…God’s purpose was to make us his children.”
God knew when the best time was to send Jesus to earth. Jesus was born in Bethlehem at just the perfect time. And God loved us so much that He sent His only Son to die for our sins — at just the right time.
Sometimes we can’t depend on our alarm clocks or calendars to be right. But we can always depend on God and His perfect time.
