Good morning, DearHeart.
Have you ever done a personality type test? I’m drawn to those – drawn to any insight into what makes people tick … what are their strengths and weaknesses, typical behaviors and comfort zones. One word that consistently comes to the top in my type is “compassion”. I recently read a devotional about those who react with “slow compassion”.
Those things we feel urged to do today but put off:
-the phone call
We stall, for whatever reason, maybe even a good reason. We decide we will do it another day, maybe tomorrow, or after we think it through a little better. The thought remains just a thought, never becoming the action intended. In putting it off, we lose the passion to do it. Slow compassion often leaves us unmoved.
God’s Word gives us advice on “tomorrow”:
“Teach us to realize the brevity of life …” (Psalm 90:12, NLT)
“For my days disappear like smoke …” (Psalm 102:3, NLT)
“Don’t brag about tomorrow, since you don’t know what the day will bring.” (Proverbs 27:1, NLT)
What is it you are feeling compelled to do today? If you know in your heart you are to do it, do it. Today.
