” Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. ” Proverbs 27: 1
To procrastinate is to put off a required action until a future time. It means to defer or to postpone.
Life is full of decisions and time is often of essence in these decisions. Procrastination is, therefore, a character flaw that affects millions of people in every walk of life. While it is regarded as normal for people to procrastinate, it can become a problem that can hinder normal life functioning. It cuts across all areas of life, from accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour to attending to assignments by students and many other areas. It is our prayer that the Holy Spirit will teach us as we study in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
When people allow worldly entanglement it could lead to procrastination – Gen. 19: 16; Matt. 19: 22. Consideration of family pressure at the expense of God’s business could lead to procrastination of God’s business – Matt. 8: 21; Lk. 9: 59-62.
EFFECTS OF PROCRASTINATION
One of the effects of procrastination is loss of fellowship and opportunities – Matt. 25: 11-12; Lk. 13: 24-25. Procrastination could cause one to be caught off guard and be met unprepared – Matt. 24: 48-51. We could lose souls if we procrastinate in witnessing – Jer. 8: 20.
SOLUTION TO PROCRASTINATION
Proper planning and constant reminder is a solution to procrastination – Lk. 14: 28. Priorities should be set right – Ecc. 3: 1; Isa. 56: 12; Acts 24: 25. Self discipline could help against procrastination. This includes the areas of eating, talking, watching TV, movies, use of telephone and other areas of distraction. It is always better to focus on today and not tomorrow – Matt. 6: 25-31. Always remember that you are here on earth temporarily and let this guide you in your commitment to the work of God – Hab. 2: 3; Matt. 24: 48-51.
You may procrastinate but time does not. It keeps on moving. Time waits for no man and the lost time can never be regained. Today’s duty that is put off till tomorrow usually gives you a double burden to bear. The best way is to do it at the proper time. Christ will come like a thief in the night. Repent now and do not postpone your salvation. Tomorrow might be too late –2 Cor. 6:2, Deut. 23:21, Ecc. 5:4, 12:1.
