“Eh, I’ll do it tomorrow, it can wait.” It is all too tempting, easy and common to procrastinate. When we have a task to do, especially if it’s not something we’re fond of, we will make every excuse not to do it.
I don’t know about you, but I am certainly guilty of such! The problem is that some things are not to be procrastinated upon. Actually, scratch that, I dare say nothing is to be procrastinated upon. As believers, we have been made anew. We are called to be salt and light in a dim, dying world. I need to use each moment while on the earth to be about the Father’s work.
Our time on earth is short (we are but a fading flower: here today and gone tomorrow). Let us use our time here to the benefit of God’s kingdom and His glory. I cannot claim to always do this, but I pray that i will!
As the Lord rightly stated to his weary disciples, “The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak” (Matthew 26:41). Thanks be to God that we do not walk in the flesh but in the Spirit of Our Lord! It is my prayer that we will be set ablaze for the Lord’s work: focused, passionate, and driven in all we do.
Father God, please set us ablaze for your kingdom, for the work you would have us do. Let us not be idle, but be filled with a sense of urgency to preach your word and seek your face. Our flesh is weak, indeed, but you are greater than our flesh! We praise and thank you in your Son Jesus’ name. Amen
