* Dealing with procrastination
Joshua asked why some of the tribes were putting off the job of possessing the land. Often we delay doing jobs that seem large, difficult, boring, or disagreeable. But to continue putting them off shows lack of discipline, poor stewardship of time, and, in some cases, disobedience to God. Jobs we don’t enjoy require concentration, teamwork, twice as much time, lots of encouragement, and accountability. Remember this when you are tempted to procrastinate. (NLT)
Joshua 18:3-6 – Then Joshua asked them, “How long are you going to wait before taking possession of the remaining land the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has given to you? Select three men from each tribe, and I will send them out to survey the unconquered territory. They will return to me with a written report of their proposed divisions of the inheritance. The scouts will map the land into seven sections, excluding Judah’s territory in the south and Joseph’s territory in the north. Then I will cast sacred lots in the presence of the Lord our God to decide which section will be assigned to each tribe.
* Don’t put off, procrastinate, responding to God
Rehoboam’s story is tragic because he “did not seek the Lord with all his heart.” It is dangerous to put off responding to God. God asks us for a firm commitment, and unless we respond by trusting him completely, we will find ourselves alienated from him. (NLT)
2 Chronicles 12:14 – But he was an evil king, for he did not seek the Lord with all his heart.
