Last week I read a statement from one of the most outstanding clergyman of our time and perhaps all time for that matter. In reading about such men and women over the years I have noticed one practice that stands out among such servants whatever their particular group choices.
"I've never been one to put off unpleasant tasks; they cause less anxiety when they're behind you." Chuck Swindoll in "Saying it Well."
Putting off doing things that must be done, regardless of why is a habit almost everyone must overcome, no matter what course our life takes. On occasion I will have to do something I do not want to be involved in but it must be dealt with. So I may practice doing it in my mind first. I play it over again and before you know it six months have passed. I no longer have a mere unpleasant deed to perform, but an action that has grown exponentially and war may have to be waged.
Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
Most of God's dealings with us require action and when an unpleasant necessity presents itself, prayerfully organize all information available and then deal with the thing, person or persons and get it behind you. Now.
