Delayed obedience is disobedience.

When he heard this axiom, a father said that he knew he had found a principle to use with his children. It’s a  notion that we all would do well to remember and pay attention to. Too often we think, “I’ll do it later”; but too often “later” never becomes the right time. Prompt obedience will please those we are responsible to, and it will give us a great sense of peace.

I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands (Psalm 119:60).
