I knew about a half week before break started that I had to do 4 papers that are due the day I start classes again. But here it is 2 days before the due date that I am struggling to get them done. The papers won't be as good because I don't have the time to make them super good. Tomorrow I have a full plate with church, getting back to school, settling in, preparation for classes the next day and possibly step practice. They say better late than never.
If I apply this story to God then that last statement is completely false. God is good but God also doesn't tolerate things for too long especially if it's something we know is wrong. I can't wait until I am on my death bed to praise him. Because on the death bed I won't be able to praise him like I could now. The praise won't be as good as it could have. I won't have the same energy. So while I am young I will do my best to praise him the best I can. I won't wait until the last minute.
