Ruth 3:14-18

14 So she lay at his feet until morning and rose before one could recognize another; and he said, “Let it not be known that the woman came to the threshing floor.” 15 Again he said, “Give me the cloak that is on you and hold it.” So she held it, and he measured six measures of barley and laid it on her. Then [l]she went into the city. 16 When she came to her mother-in-law, she said, “[m]How did it go, my daughter?” And she told her all that the man had done for her. 17 She said, “These six measures of barley he gave to me, for he said, ‘Do not go to your mother-in-law empty-handed.’” 18 Then she said, “Wait, my daughter, until you know how the matter [n]turns out; for the man will not rest until he has [o]settled it today.”

For some of us procrastination can be a real struggle. But Boaz was no procrastinator. He intended to take care of business, and his reputation upheld that.

When you commit to something, whether it be to family, in business, or otherwise, make it happen. Now, that’s not to say that certain things take time or that something might not come up which needs your immediate attention.

But be careful with delaying your commitments, and if you have to, communicate with those affected. Otherwise, they will begin to doubt your commitment. Be faithful in all things, and if you struggle, ask God to help you have more faithfulness.
