BIBLE READING: Luke 9:57-62
Many of us Americans seem to be professional procrastinators. We put off everything from going to the doctor, to changing the oil in our car. However, procrastination can involve a great deal of risk. Maybe you developed a disease that could have been diagnosed and cured earlier, but you put off a doctor’s appointment. Maybe, months ago, you heard a knocking noise under you car’s hood that could have been prevented if only you hadn’t procrastinated an oil change. Sometimes, the level of risk with some things is much greater than others. Consider you spiritual life in light of Isaiah’s comments when he says, “Seek the LORD while he may be found; call upon him while he is near” (Isaiah 55:6).
Even this very moment, we can seek God and request His salvation. Tomorrow, He may not be found. Salvation is not something we should procrastinate.
Application: Think about something you put off till tomorrow. What could you have changed to get it done today?
