We make excuses. One of the most prominent: “I’ll do it when things settle down.” Guess what? Things never will. If you’re going to do any good in your life, the time is now. The Bible says, “If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done” (Ecclesiastes 11:4 TLB). Jesus says, “All of us must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent me, for there is little time left before the night falls and all work comes to an end” (John 9:4 TLB). God has assigned tasks for all of us to do in our lives. And our lives are ticking away. Don’t wait for perfect conditions; every day, look for the opportunities God gives you to help and encourage others.
