Joshua 2:21 “And she said, According unto your words, so be it. And she sent them away, and they departed: and she bound the scarlet line in the window.”
Joshua 2:22 “And they went, and came unto the mountain, and abode there three days, until the pursuers were returned: and the pursuers sought them throughout all the way, but found them not.”
The first thing that causes procrastination in my opinion is laziness. To be lazy means unwillingness to work or make an effort. Some people are simply lazy and wouldn’t lift a finger that is a terrible attitude.
Proverbs 22:13 “The slothful man saith, There is a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets.”
A lazy man will always look for the flimsiest excuse to run away from work. Solomon told us here that a lazy man will procrastinate by telling people that he’s waiting for a lion to leave the streets before he can go out to work. Laziness will make a man cook up excuses, reasonable or not just to avoid work.
I once read the following write-up about procrastination, “Procrastination is my sin. It brings me nothing but sorrow. I know I should stop it. In fact, I will, tomorrow”.
The second reason why people procrastinate is lack of desire or will power. Many people are simply not motivated enough for what they want to do. They simply don’t want to carry out the task so they put it off. If you don’t believe in a cause, you can develop a lackadaisical attitude towards it, which will make you to keep postponing the task.
Another reason that is closely related to the above is indecision. When we are indecisive about something we simply can’t make up our minds and as a result procrastination sets in. When we are yet to make up our minds on something we simply don’t do anything.
We will postpone buying a car, cooking, choosing a career path, getting married, buying new clothes, getting started on a project and several other tasks.
James 1:6 “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.”
