THE COST OF PROCRASTINATION

Mar 05, 2018 | A Devotional.

When you procrastinate you’re saying one of two things to yourself, “It’s easier to avoid this than to face it” and that’s wrong.  The other one is “It will be easier to handle this tomorrow (or later)” and that’s wrong too.


The Bible tells us that there is a cost to procrastination.
Procrastination causes problems — Procrastination takes a problem and makes it a crisis. The longer you wait to start, the harder it is to begin.
Procrastination wastes opportunities – “If you won’t plow in the cold, you won’t eat at harvest.” (Proverbs 20:4 LB).

When opportunity knocks, open the door!  Take the advantage while you’ve got it.  If you don’t, you’ll miss it.
Procrastination hurts people — Laziness prevents us from being loving.  Love requires commitment, energy, and work.  A lot of people just don’t want to work at being loving; it’s easier to be lazy. Many marriages break up because one spouse — perhaps both spouses – are unwilling to make the effort necessary to save the marriage.
Prayerfully consider the price you may be paying for procrastination.
