Matthew 5:25 Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison.
Think of very strong glue applied to join two wooden frames: after a few seconds, you might succeed in separating these joints with ease, after a minute, with some difficulty. Leave the same connection for a day and you may end up destroying the frames just to break the joints.
The complexity of many challenges are time-dependent, and so is finding solutions. It is why Jesus admonished a reconciliation before the matters in question changed hands because then, all negotiations or pleas have to be entered at a different level. It gets even more complicated if passed on further.
Many of life’s challenges may start small- in the hands of an accuser. If we do not make attempts to address them before they reach the judge, they would have expanded exponentially to become more challenging to deal with. So whether it is a habit, an attitude, a dent or anything that has potential to derail progress or curtail advance, work on them while they are yet budding lesr they bear fruits you cannot control.
Remember # many situations are time-sensitive
