The lady rolled over for the fourth time, swatting at the alarm clock. She thought, “What does it matter if I hit the snooze button one more time?” It matters because procrastination doesn’t always just affect the procrastinator.

In the book of Proverbs we read about a virtuous woman who woke up while it was still night to prepare meat for her household and maidens. She chose to have things ready when they were needed, without delay. She and those that she was providing for were blessed because of her efforts.

So when The Lord gives you something to do don’t “hit the snooze”. Get up and get to work because you probably aren’t the only one who will be affected.

Proverbs 31:15
