Procrastination can be one of our biggest enemies. How many times have we put off important decisions until tomorrow? One such decision is making preparations on how we will spend eternity. For those of you who are non-believers give me a minute and I will get back to you in a few lines. Feel free to keep reading however. For my Christian brothers and sisters, it is time for us to step up and take the lead in the fight for saving souls. For those of you who are on the fence and keep saying to yourselves, “I will make a decision to follow Jesus tomorrow”, you may just run out of time. We all think we have more time until we don’t. Life can can end in the blink of an eye. We face battles every day against enemies seen and unseen. The fact that we may not be able to see an enemy doesn’t make them any less lethal to our eternal well-being.
Having the honor of raising kids or having an influence in the development of our youth is a huge responsibility that shouldn’t be taken lightly. We need to be there for them and not keep putting them off until “tomorrow” when we feel we may have more time. Life has a good way of balancing things out. While our children are young they crave our attention, when we are old we crave theirs. Spend time with them while you still can have an impact on their development. A song that helps to bring to bring home this point of not waiting until “tomorrow” is “Cat in the Cradle” by Harry Chapin.
These are only two examples of decisions that are put off until tomorrow. Ask yourself, what would you do today if you knew that you wouldn’t be alive tomorrow? Then put forth an effort to get those things done. Remember, tomorrow is not promised to any of us.
