Here are some excerpts from a post by Pastor Joe Thorn. It is a great post and I hope you to head over to his blog to read the rest!
For years I was a serious procrastinator. In fact, I think I could have gone pro (if that sort of thing paid). So I did what a lot of college students do, putting off assignments until the last minute. But I would justify myself by calling it “time management” and pointing to a solid grade. Of course this was not limited to writing papers in college. It was something that was true of my life in general. On a few occasions and in a couple different contexts I was called out on my procrastination, but I dismissed them all. I found no one convincing until my friend Jonathan Edwards stepped up. One day I wound up reading his treatise, Procrastination, or, The Sin and Folly of Depending on Future Time, and it wrecked me in the best of ways.
Why is procrastination wrong? Edwards argues that procrastination presumes upon the grace of God, assuming that he has given us future time when in fact our time may be short. We do not know whether or not we have tomorrow, so we must wisely improve upon the time God does give us.
Procrastination is an ugly sin that leads us away from engaging and enjoying the gifts and responsibilities God gives us. It tells us we can play with our kids another time, take our wife out on a date next month, or finish that project some time down the road because God owes us a future. It is a way of avoiding the things God has called us to do today.
