Scripture for today: Exodus 8:8-10
Procrastination means putting off until tomorrow what could be done today. Most of us have procrastinated at some point. Some of us may be worse about this than others.
Procrastinating about some things may not be a big deal. But in other areas, it would be a big mistake.
In Exodus 8, the Lord sent a plague of frogs across Egypt. They are everywhere. Picture an Egyptian home with frogs everywhere. A wife demands that her husband do something, to which he would respond, “What do you expect me to do? I can’t kill them. There are too many!”
Pharaoh sends for Moses and tells him to make the frogs go away, to which Moses says he will at the time of Pharaoh’s choosing. You would think Pharaoh would have responded with “Yesterday” or “Enough already, get rid of the frogs now!”
Instead, Pharaoh said, “Tomorrow.” All across Egypt, the people spent another night with the frogs.
Is there something you’ve been putting off? Something you should have already done?
Maybe you need to begin exercising.
Maybe you need to begin reading your Bible.
Maybe there is someone you need to talk to.
Benjamin Franklin once said, “You may delay, but time will not.”
Don’t continue to procrastinate. Take action today.
