Playing Games With Your Soul

We can probably all relate to the little games people play in their lives. It goes something like this: the van is running on fumes and I am well beyond tired and already bought groceries and shopped at the mall and attended t-ball practice and I just cannot bear to pull up to that pump. I play the ‘can we make it home and back to the pump’ game and most of the time I make it.

There are many similar ways that we sometimes (often) play games in life – at least this has been my experience much more often than it should. Many of us share those Scarlet O’Hara moments when we resolve to take care of x, y, z – just as long as it can wait until tomorrow. But is playing these waiting games a good idea when it comes to our souls?
