Augustine: procrastination

    Commemoration of Priscilla Lydia Sellon, a Restorer of the Religious Life in the Church of England, 1876
    And he said to his disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing.”
    —Luke 12:22-23 (ESV)
    God has promised forgiveness to your repentance, but He has not promised tomorrow to your procrastination.
    ... St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), Sermon 73A, on the man who sowed good seed in his field, Sermons, v. III, Brooklyn, New York: New City Press, 1991, p. 296 (see the book)
    See also Luke 12:16-23; Isa. 21:12; Matt. 13:24-30; 24:42-43; John 9:4; 12:35; Eph. 5:15-16; Col. 4:5
Quiet time reflection:
    Show me, Lord, Your time for my repentance.
