1 Kings 5:3 You know how my father David could not build a house for the name of the Lord his God because of the wars which were fought against him on every side, until the Lord put his foes under the soles of his feet.
A good leader, like Solomon, realizes that those who preceded him could not do all things during their time of leadership.  Timing is always most important in doing major things in life – whether it is personally or vocationally.
Let us pray that our president and all of the new administration will understand this truth and live by its code.  It is so easy to blame previous administrations but it is  another thing to “Strike while the iron’s hot” during your tenure.  There are also things we must not attempt because time and finances aren’t available even when the need is there and people demand attention concerning the issue.
