How necessary is punctuality then it shows that we care about God’s will and are really in earnest. Hic et nunc (This and now )is the Spirit. In study time, study-prayer at prayer time, play at playtime. Give your attention to your work. Jesus is your model - in his hidden life. His obedience, His humility- His spirit of work and prayer. Look over your rules. Every jot and title must be fulfilled. It is absolutely necessary for it is part of God’s will. It is your duty to give edification and necessary to maintain the high spirit of the house as regards duties.
