I often joke about Baptist Standard Time. Baptists are known for being late to Sunday School, Meetings, and even Worship. I think that grieves God. People show up early for ballgames. They show up early or on time for work. But, when it comes to the things of God – they are late. The occasional tardiness cannot be avoided. The kids have a bad morning. The traffic was extra heavy. The alarm clock failed. But, when you are almost always late, it reveals something – the things of God are not important. If Sunday School, Worship, etc was important, people would arrive early and with eagerness. As it is, sad to say, many just do not care.
