Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap according to kindness. Break up your fallow ground; for it is time to seek the LORD, until he comes and rains righteousness on you.
Have you ever put something off until the last minute? I know I have. I even put off finishing making a baby blanket for my youngest granddaughter. Instead of having it ready for the baby shower, I told myself I would have it done by the time she was born. I’ve got two weeks to finish that blanket.
Procrastinating may work for baby blankets and clean out the garage, but when it comes to seeking the LORD, procrastination is the last thing you want to be doing.
When we procrastinate we miss opportunities to enjoy God’s blessings. When we procrastinate we miss opportunities to serve God. When we procrastinate we miss opportunities to share the Good News of salvation with those who are lost. When we procrastinate we miss opportunities to be the hands, feet, eyes, and ears of Jesus. When we procrastinate we risk experiencing heaven for all eternity.
Listen to some useful quotes.
“Never put off until tomorrow, what you can do today.”
“My advice is to never do tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is the thief of time.”
Do this: Make a list of things you’ve been putting off. Do one of them each day until you have completed the list.
