2 Timothy 1:7. 7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. ...

I have to be tricky in giving the title, if I say ‘Punctuality’, it is boring, people may not open the message, if I say ‘Cheetah-speed’ that sounds cool so I guess they would read.  People who are unpunctual, late and cool are not always a failure, they are successful,   in high positions and always manage to rush and get things done.  In fact, people who wake up late,  are super cool, ride their bike fast to make up the lost time and  are not at all guilty. In order to make up the lost time, they scream at people at home, show anger at petrol bunk, ride the bike in Cheetah-speed and eventually they reach office.  I watched a very successful TV Host celebrity say, “ Unpunctuality is not evil”, the young people who hear this would also justify this weakness in them.  Your success, education and brilliance is null and void and garbage without discipline.

Punctuality is a golden discipline that will make people respect you!!!

For several years one particular student was continuously late,  I tried several methods nothing worked, our Abide School was growing in discipline except this girl who was careless in studies too.  I called her one day and asked what time she wakes up, she said '7 am', I was shocked. How can she wake up at 7 am and come to school at 8.15 am???(she has long hair that has to be braided) Then I asked what time her mom wakes up, she said '7.30am' now double shock for me.  I told her to wake up at 6 am from the next day and also told her to inform her mom about our conversation. From the next day she was at the gate at 8.15 am.  Glory to Jesus!

People who are always late , careless and unpunctual, produce offspring who are unpunctual too!  How can you expect your team, followers and children to be different from you?  Good leaders produce powerful team! Do not enter new year 2023 with your old self of being careless, lethargic and disorganized, make a sacrifice to get yourself revamped for the sake of your family if you are married.  Remember, the kids are looking at the parents as a role models!
