A few years back, I was praying regularly and felt the need to tithe someplace. I thought I heard I should tithe to my mother's church. But I postponed taking any action for two weeks (remember this number).
Ahem. Two weeks.
What I took away from this episode was that had I immediately taken action at the time God had prompted me, it may have been able to prevent that family from dealing with hunger the past two weeks. This helped me believe that not only God's instructions, but his timing is important to act upon.
