Later

Have you ever thought that you would deal with something that the Lord laid on your heart later?  Things are really busy right now.  Work is crazy.  The kids are involved in so many things.  There will be time to really dive into this after life settles down a bit.  I can personally come up with a bunch more “reasons.”
We tend to put off working on our relationship with Christ until a more convenient time; He does not seem to accept that...
Christ does not seem to give us those “reasons.”  In Luke 12:35 – 48, He exhorts us as His followers to be always ready, alert, focused on His agenda.  It is interesting that when Peter asked for clarification in verse 41, Christ amped up the exhortation ending with the oft quoted thought in 48, “From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more.”  That applies to pretty much all of us as believers.

He has given us much.  He has been engaged in our lives from before we were born.  He has shaped the events that have filled our lives.  He has done that for a purpose.  He “requires” us to respond.  Not sure we should put the response off for any reason.

  1. For years I've put off giving to a certain faith-based staff worker, hesitating between 2 views. I hung up 3 minutes ago with his organization, authorizing monthly withdrawal from my checking account. And I asked the Lord, 2 minutes ago, "Should I have done this a long time ago?" And then 1 minute ago your question hit my in-basket. Duhhhh!
