A Convenient Season

And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ. And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee. (Acts 24:24-25)

Do you put things off because it is not a convenient time? I would venture to guess that we have all done this with something. Maybe it is cleaning the house or washing the car. Putting off earthly things is trivial; what is a problem is if we put off studying and following God. That is far from trivial. We all know the saying, "Why do today what we can put off until tomorrow?" What if tomorrow never comes and we have not given God the time that we should?

Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. (Jas. 4:13-17)
