“Study when it’s time to study,” writes Baptist preacher, H.B. Charles, Jr. “You know how it goes. When you finally get to the study, you are blitzed by the temptation to do other things. By all means, resist that temptation. When it’s time to study, study. Don’t web surf or answer emails or play with your smartphone or clean your desk or organize your books or . . . . You get the point. Put your behind in the seat. Get to work. Don’t procrastinate. Pray. Read. Study. Think. Write. You have no right to complain about the time you do not have if you do not use the time you have wisely. Remind yourself that you will never get this week again.”

– H.B. Charles, Jr. On Preaching: Personal & Pastoral Insights for the Preparation & Practice of Preaching (Chicago: Moody, 2014), 26.
