“It is said of a brother that each time his thoughts seduced him and said, “let today slip by and repent tomorrow,” this wise brother would answer: “Today I shall show repentance with my deeds; as for tomorrow, let God’s will be done.”
Are you familiar with the expression “Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow?” We are all guilty of procrastination and sometimes it may even be appropriate but usually it is not.
How much less appropriate it is to put off doing good or facing up to a wrong. The fact is, if we just simply do what it is right and proper at the time, we will be much more free than we would be if we put it off because the putting off only weighs us down. The result will be that we are always doing God’s will.
