Procrastination Costs You DearlySeptember 12, 2019 Save Article
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” James 4:17
“Procrastination.” Just seeing the word makes me want to put off saying anything else.
Are you under conviction in that area? One fellow said, “I started to procrastinate, then decided to put it off.”
Procrastination is a form of disobedience. When God tells us to do something and we don’t do it, we can label our actions with all kinds of fancy words, but the bottom line is, it’s sin.
Each day gives you 1,440 minutes. Days are passing and time cannot be stopped. You can’t call a “time out” in life. And time can’t be stored like money in the bank. A #1 hit song in the 70’s began, “If I could save time in a bottle….” You can’t. Really, the only thing you can do with time is use it or lose it.
The oldest of all the psalms, written by Moses, says, “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom” (Psalm 90:12). Someone once wrote, “Lost: One golden hour, studded with sixty diamond minutes. No reward offered, for it is lost forever." Ephesians 5:16 cautions us, “Redeeming the time, because the days are [filled with] evil.” These are evil times. Make every minute count.
