Daily Bible Reading: Proverbs 3 – 4

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 3:27 - 28 – “Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, When it is in the power of thy hand to do it. Say not unto thy neighbor, Go, and come again, And to-morrow I will give; When thou hast it by thee.”

There are many lessons to be learned in this book. There are many blessings that comes from wisdom – living that godly life in an ungodly world. We see one such lesson in the two verse of our reading today – a warning not to procrastinate.

Procrastination is defined as putting off till another day or time; to defer; to delay. Some people find this a regular part of their life – however, God warns us not to develop this habit. This habit has one central goal: defeat. Don’t delay today – put off this habit of putting off.

Prayer: God of the present, remind me each time I put off that which I should do. Help me to respond when I need to respond. Amen.
