Do you procrastinate? Now, don’t put off answering that question. We all procrastinate at something. I have a task on my to-do list that has lived there for months. It is sorting through the last box from our move two years ago. All the other boxes have been unpacked or set on shelves for storage. This box, which holds items from my desk at work, sits in the basement floor. For several weeks I have planned to deal with it. But something always comes up. Or I forget. Or I just don’t have the ambition. Do you have something you always put off doing?
Procrastination for some things is acceptable. For others, it can be dangerous. If you experience symptoms of a major health problem, you shouldn’t put off a visit to the doctor. If you have bills to pay, putting them off can eventually lead to bankruptcy. Then there’s doing good. Proverbs 3:27-28 warns us not to put off doing good. It reads, ‘Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back later; I’ll give it tomorrow”– when you now have it with you.’ (NIV)
So, are you putting off doing some good for a neighbor, a co-worker, a store clerk or a restaurant wait staff? If you have the power to act, then act today.
