Four Cowboys

 This is a story about four cowboys named:

 Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.


 There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked

 to do it.

 Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have

 done it, but Nobody did it.

 Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job.

 Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that

 Everybody wouldn't do it.

 It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when actually

 Nobody asked Anybody.................


 Question: "What does the Bible say about procrastination?"


 Answer: Procrastination is “the act of willfully delaying the doing of something that should be done,” and in some people it is a habitual way of handling any task. While the word itself is not found in the Bible, sometimes procrastination is the result of laziness, and the Bible has plenty to say about that.

 Some people, upon hearing the gospel and knowing their spiritual need, delay in making a response. This is the most dangerous type of procrastination. Life is short, and we do not know what will happen tomorrow (James 4:13-14). The Bible urges us to get right with God today.

“See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. As has just been said: ‘Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion’” (Heb 3:12-13, 15) To procrastinate and put off getting right with God is to harden one’s own heart.

 So in the matter of our spiritual life, we dare not procrastinate.

It is also unwise to delay healing a broken relationship or dealing with anger.

And since our service to God motivates all we do, we have no reason to procrastinate.                                                                                         In short, procrastination is a bad habit that can have eternal effect.
