I know, I know – all good things must come to an end. I’m not sure why I’m so reluctant to take down my main Christmas tree. I had no issues taking down the other two trees. I’ve packed up some of the Santas and pillows, but the big tree. . . I’m dragging my feet. I can’t say that it’s not been up long enough – it’s been up since the first of November! My Santa collection has been out long enough that it needs dusting! And once, Christmas is put away, my living room looks HUGE! All is once again “right with the world,” so why am I procrastinating?
This dilemma brought to mind why some people drag their feet when it comes to obeying the gospel. They know that the benefits of obedience is worth so much more “than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season” (Hebrews 11:25b). Living the Christian life enables you to fully appreciate His precious promises, knowing that He said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5b). We are chosen, (Ephesians 1:4) to be His adopted children (Ephesians 1:5), and to enjoy “all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3). So, why are you dragging your feet? For “behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (II Corinthians 6:2).
I think it’s time to get to work! Simply blessed, Courtney
