Do you procrastinate very often then read the story below?

I was sitting on the sofa in my apartment eating some food when I feel a piece go down my throat into the wrong pipe. I hack until I spit it onto the floor but it still feels like something’s in there. I go into the bathroom to hack some more, I’ ll try to reach the food by putting my finger in my throat, I still feel it. I’m standing there wondering “How do I know if I’m choking?” After a while, I realize I’m wondering that for so long, I should have answered my question already. Just then I heard a loud knock at my door. “Tao po, Hello, Anybody home?” The voice belongs to my Filipino neighbor. “Just a minute and sandali lang” I yell. I decided to push some things into my bathroom cabinet so it doesn’t look like a total mess. Suddenly I heard a loud noise his barging in. What is happening, they trespassing what are their business here? I run out of the bathroom. I was greeted by my neighbor with his wife and a policeman. What the hell? They seem to be staring at something with looks of shock and shame. “Now we know why he hasn’t been answering for days.” Disgusted! I turn around to see what they are staring at and see my dead body lying on the floor. It looks like it’s been there for days, skin bluish obvious sign of choking. I guess that answers my question. Now I’ve realized I’m already dead what would I do? Then I feel a slap in my face, It was just a dream. Panaginip lang pala salamat sa Diyos.

Words to live by:

Some people, upon hearing the gospel and knowing their spiritual need, delay in making a response. This is the most dangerous type of procrastination. Life is short, and we do not know what will happen tomorrow as written in  (James 4:13-14).  Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit” – 14 yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.
