What day of the week do you think researchers have found to be the busiest?
Maybe you guessed Monday because of all that piles up over the weekend. Or maybe Friday because you’re trying to get everything done before the weekend? But neither day is the correct answer. The busiest day of the week is – “tomorrow” because that’s when we plan to do so many things.
Many people add lots of unnecessary stress to their lives because they procrastinate on what they know God really wants them to do. Someone put it this way, “Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.” I like that quote because it is so true. Probably you can identify something right now that you’ve been putting off till tomorrow for days or weeks.
Why not make a commitment right now as to when you are going to do it. If possible go ahead and do it today. Tomorrow never arrives. That’s why we have to spend today redeeming the time.
