Don’t Sit Here Until We Die

Is there something you have needed to do but you have put it off? Maybe there is something you need to do but you are afraid of doing it. Maybe there is someone you need to talk to resolve some differences between you and them. Maybe there is a task or a project but you’ve been talking about for a long time but you haven’t acted and you need to.
In II Kings 7:3-4, Samaria was besieged by the Arameans. There were four men with leprosy sitting at the entrance of the city gates and they were starving.
As they reasoned among themselves they thought, “Why sit here until we die? If we stay here we are going to die of starvation. Let’s turn ourselves in to the Aramean army. If we live, that’s wonderful but if we die, well, we are going to die of starvation here if we don’t take action.”
Focus on the words… “why sit here until we die.”
That’s a question some of us may need to ask ourselves. Is there something you have been thinking about doing but you keep putting it off? Take action! “Why sit here until we die?”
Is there someone you need to talk to but you keep putting it off? Go and talk with them. If they don’t listen to you or receive you warmly well, you’ve done your part. “Why sit here until we die?”
There may be some leaders of a church that need to act Maybe your church has been declining and you have talked and talked and talked but you haven’t acted. “Why sit here until we die?”
Today if there is something you need to do, do it! If there is someone you need to talk to do it! Don’t put it off any longer.
“Why sit here until we die?”
When the four lepers acted, they went into the camp of the Arameans The Lord had caused them to hear the sound of an army advancing on them. The Arameans fled their camp leaving food and wine. The four lepers ate and then, they told they told the gatekeepers of the city of Samaria what had happened.
They acted and they were fed. Today, don’t put it off any longer. Take action. Don’t sit here, until we die.
