One of my faults is running a few minutes late and it is something I am working on. I hate being late (5 min.) to church because I certainly wouldn't want anyone to think I don't value worship. But ultimately, God knows my heart and it is His opinion that matters. So I'd rather go and be a few mintes late than to neglect worship totally. I fear God more than men.

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved." Eph. 1:3-6 ESV
