Now, that really makes sense. On the other hand, the best and perhaps only time to properly repair a roof is when it is not raining. What a dilemma we sometimes find ourselves in. Most often, the dilemma is connected to or driven by our laziness. All too often we put off for tomorrow that which we do not need to do today. There is something very human about that pattern. First things first, set your priorities and all those good thoughts move roof repair down the list.

Our spiritual roof must never be allowed to leak, so rain or shine, be sure the roof is in good repair. Fear can hamper roof repair (Matthew 25:25-26 Matthew 25:25-26 [25] And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the earth: see, there you have that is yours. [26] His lord answered and said to him, You wicked and slothful servant, you knew that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strewed:

). Jesus called that being lazy. Thinking the rain is delayed can make one hesitate (Matthew 24:48 Matthew 24:48But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delays his coming;

). Misjudgment can also allow the damage to go untended (Luke 12:20-21 Luke 12:20-21 [20] But God said to him, You fool, this night your soul shall be required of you: then whose shall those things be, which you have provided? [21] So is he that lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

). Decisions are ours—when do you repair a roof? Sometimes the answer is right now!
