Acts 11:18. And they praised God, saying, “Then God has given even to the Gentiles the repentance that leads to life.”
I turned out of the hotel parking lot on my way to a guest preaching assignment. The territory was unfamiliar to me. I was told it would take only twenty minutes to get to the church. I had a fairly decent map. I had not felt particularly well after a long drive the day before, so I allowed myself an extra fifteen minutes. Lesson learned. Allow longer when I’m not familiar with where I’m going.
