“…For those who systematically commit to procrastination …… there is HOPE….”

procrastination-cartoonUnder what circumstances is COMMITMENT and PROCRASTNATION polar-opposites, yet also …. Complementary?  We all understand the basics of Commitment, whereby one pledges their support, loyalty, and fidelity to a particular person or event.  We all PRIDE ourselves in fulfilling this very responsible characteristic in our day-to-day lives.  Such commitments are prevalent, and part of, one’s normal daily life.  Being committed in our jobs; family lives, social life – are not just the right thing to do, it’s a demand.  If we cannot commit to do the best of our capabilities in our jobs, then we are not the best candidate for that position.  Likewise,  and even more important, is our commitment to our children, spouses, and family members, which is the most basic part of one’s life.  Failing this is the ultimate in failure.  Commitments to our political allies, community responsibilities, and social lives; sometimes are thought to be of less importance.  Then we have the most important commitment of all… our commitment to Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Too often, this commitment is disregarded as old-fashioned and archaic.  Unfortunately, there are those of us who PROGRASTINATE in any form, or type, of commitment.  We are experts in PROGRASTINATION, and one could say….we are deeply COMMITED to PROGRASTINATION.  There you have where and why one can be committed and, yet procrastinate in the same endeavor; it’s where commitment and procrastination go hand and hand.  To most; commitment and procrastination are polar opposites.  For those who systematically commit to procrastination …… there is HOPE.  Both of these characteristics are personal CHOICES.  We decide to be committed, and we decide to procrastinate.  We have the ability to change, but not enough will-power to change bad habits.  To be characterized, and reputed to be a procrastinator, and one who fails to keep their commitments, is not a characteristic that one should be proud of or wish to emulate.  While we all have failed in some manner, and to some degree; we don’t have to remain in the rut of failures.  Ephesians 5:15-17 Look carefully then, how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.  Genesis 2:24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.  Matthew 22:37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”  …Blessings…cjlb…2/08/14
