(Proverbs 6:4 KJV) Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.
Excuses abound in my life. When there is something that I don’t want to do I can find limitless other important tasks that need to be done. Often they do. Often they don’t really. We use them to keep from doing what we want to avoid. Here we have a young man who has done something stupid. In this case it was co-signing on a loan for a casual acquaintance. He knows he needs to do something about it. He is being told to go and beg to get out of the trap. He doesn’t want to go so he thinks he will take a nap first.
Bad choice. Avoidance behavior. How many times have I decided to have a little snack instead of starting some task? Look at my waistline and you will get an idea. There are lots of good things to do but when used as substitutes for what is needed they become bad things to do.
So? I keep working on telling myself, “Do it now.” Sometimes I listen and life is better. Some times I don’t and the hole I am digging gets deeper. Profit from my mistakes. I am trying to.
