I saw this on a church marquee a few days ago. AND I LOVE IT! Why? Because it’s a challenge and statement of fact all in one!
It also makes you think. At first, it may be a bit confusing. But upon reflection, the light bulb above your head begins to blink a little before shining bright as you realize what the message behind it is.
Simply put, you have a decision to make.
Will it be one day or day one? Will you put off what needs to be done to one day or will this be day one of getting it done?
This matters for the following reasons:
- The last part is the most important: You decide. It’s a choice. You can sit on an egg until it hatches or you can crack that sucker and make scrambled eggs. What’s it going to be? If you’re hungry, make the eggs! What holds you back keeps you from moving forward. When it’s your decision and you never get around to it, you are your own problem. One day or day one?
- About one day. When you postpone, one day turns into some day. Some day turns into some time. Some time turns into never. My spin on the popular quote: Don’t put off today what you will still not do tomorrow. Do it now.
- About day one. Day one is the first day of the rest of your life. Get the things done you need to get done so you can do the things God wants you to do.
The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing,
while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.
– Proverbs 13:4
Putting things off is a turn off. Make every day day one!
