(Proverbs 10:10 KJV) He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall.
There are many ways in which we “wink” (7169) at things. The one that comes to mind at this point is the winking of procrastination. This is a big issue for me. It may not effect you. One of the things I find distasteful is the telephone. I do not like to answer them. I do not like to talk on them. I find that if there is a task I must complete that involves a telephone I can find countless ways to put it off.
The problem is it does not go away. To ignore the necessary causes endless “sorrow” (trouble NASB) (6094). Occasionally something will go away when it is ignored, usually it isn’t that easy.
So? Be honest. Apply a little wisdom. Some things can be ignored. Others must be dealt with. Join me in getting with it. Grab the bull by the horns or the phone out of your pocket. Quit winking.
