Jude 1:23  

“Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. Show mercy to still others, but do so with great caution, hating the sins that contaminate their lives.”

Cautiousness is a character trait that every true believer should practice at all times. It may be defined as knowing the importance of having the right timing in accomplishing the right actions.

Someone has noted that God’s work done in God’s timing will accomplish great and meaningful results. Unfortunately, too many of us think we have a better grasp of when things should be done than God does.

I often think of Joseph and the years he spent alone and forgotten in Egypt. I say forgotten, but that was only in the minds of his family. God had not forgotten him! Joseph was being prepared to save the very brothers who had betrayed him.

As we live our lives for Christ we must demonstrate caution in the way we deal with the circumstances that confront us. It is far too easy to act rashly instead of cautiously. The question we should always ask ourselves is: “What would Jesus do if He were faced with this circumstance?” Then act accordingly!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
