Organizing my Books

I sit in my office working and I realize I need a certain book from my shelves. However, I cannot find it.

I mutter to myself, “I must get this office straightened up and organized!”

I answer back. “Yes, absolutely.”

Then I sigh and think,  “Yeah, I’ll do that on a day when I have nothing else to do.”

After a moment, I laughed uproariously and return to my work.

Tomorrow isn’t the only thing that never comes. Preachers never get through with their work. They just stop at a certain point, leaving countless other things undone. It is the nature of the profession.

When would that day come when we have nothing else to do? That would be the day we have forgotten what the ministry is all about.
